The incorrect work of a student to solve an equation 2(y + 8) = 4y is shown below: Step 1: 2(y + 8) = 4y Step 2: 2y + 10 = 4y Step 3: 2y = 10 Step 4: y = 5 Which of the following explains how to correct Step 2 and shows the correct value of y? (5 points) The equation should be y + 8 = 4y after division by 2; y = 4 The equation should be y + 8 = 4y after division by 2; y = 6 2 should be distributed as 2y + 16; y = 4 2 should be distributed as 2y + 16; y = 8

    2(y+8)=4y 2y+16=4y 4y-2y=16 2y=16 y=16/2 y=8 this is your correct answer
