Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and I don't know who to do the other :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Relax and let's work on it together okay? \[a = \frac{ x + y + z }{ 3 }\] multiplying left and right hand side by 3  what will u get?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay thanks, 3a+ x+y+z?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Almost...it should be: 3a = x + y + z u mixed up the "=" and "+" sign but its okay!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3correct on the right hand side of the = sign....but how about the left hand side?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3The right hand side was 3a before...now subtracting 3a from that, what will u get?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Good job :) so we have 0 = x + y + z  3a Now plz look at the choices in ur Q, what do u see?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0not to butt in but your job is to solve for \(y\) not to set it equal to zero it takes two steps only

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3so y is by itself on one side right? that means u need to move everything else on the other side...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3@satellite73 yes, sorry I realize...too late...that I should have kept 3a on the left....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3take a step back... 3a = x + y + z now because as @satellite73 said, we need to solve for y. So we need to move x and z over to the left hand side. ok?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3We do that by subtracting x + y from the left and right hand side of the = sign what will be on the left?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Yes and I made a mistake again :(

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3So it should look like this.... 3a  (x+z) = x + y + z  (x+z) so far so good?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I think I figured it out, is it this? y = 3a  x  z
