    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

    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

    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

    (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
