we need to isolate y right? so we need to subtract 3x from both sides now we have
\[\huge~\rm-2y=-3x+12\]
any cles on what the next step is?

- Amenah8

the next step is to divide the left side by -2.

- pooja195

yes can you please do that? :)

I got -2y/-2 = 12-3x/-2
and then y = -6 -3x/-2
and the final answer is y = -6 - 3x/2.
Is this correct?

- pooja195

-6? where did that come from?

- Amenah8

I got -6 by doing 12/-2.

- pooja195

\[\huge~\rm~\frac{ −2y=−3x+12 }{ -2y=-2y-2y}\]

- Amenah8

I did that except I didn't have it divided by -2y, I had -2 without the y.

- texaschic101

keep in mind, when dividing by 2 negatives, the result is positive

- pooja195

y=-3/2x-6

- Amenah8

Ah, so that means that the answer would be a positive -6+3x/2.

- pooja195

so yes :) good job! :)

- texaschic101

y = 3/2x - 6

- texaschic101

it need to be in y = mx + b form

- pooja195
