you need to isolate x's from constant terms (this is how we solve equations)
Thus, divide by 3/4 =>
x-12=16
x=28

- anonymous

So the answer is 28 @P0sitr0n

Can you help me with 1 more problem? @P0sitr0n

3/4y-12=12 solve for y? @taylorz115820

- anonymous

Is it the same thing as for x?

- anonymous

Isolate y

- anonymous

do you know what to do 1st?

- anonymous

divide?

- anonymous

No you isolate the variable last after you have everything else away from it
Ex. 2x - 4 = 4 To love this equation you would first +4 to both sides in order to get 2x=8 then you would divide 2 from both sides to get the answer of x=4

- anonymous

Make sense?

- anonymous

yea but I always get confused whenever there's a fraction? @taylorz115820

- anonymous

A fraction where?

- anonymous

x = 28

- anonymous

We are on a different problem now

- anonymous

oh what is it

- anonymous

3/4y-12=12 solve for y

- anonymous

Trying to get her to understand when to add or multiply or whatever 1st

- anonymous

y in (-oo:+oo)
(3/4)*y = 12 // - 12
(3/4)*y-12 = 0
3/4*y-12 = 0 // + 12
3/4*y = 12 // : 3/4
y = 12/3/4
y = 16
y = 16

- anonymous

I think you did it wrong why is there a 0 it is supposed to be 12

- anonymous

hold on

- anonymous

So whats the answer?

- anonymous

(3/4)y-12=12
+12+12
(3/4)y = 24
Divide by the reciprocal of 3/4 which is 4/3 which then you would really be multiplying 4/3•24 which = 32

- anonymous

So y = 32

- anonymous

So the answer is 32?

- anonymous

Thanks

- anonymous

and if you plug 32 for y you should get 12

- anonymous

yea

- anonymous

okay thanks both of you guys :)
