Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\(\dfrac{.75(x12)}{.75} = \dfrac{12}{.75}\) \(\dfrac{\cancel{.75}(x12)}{\cancel{.75}} = \dfrac{12}{.75}\) \(x12 = \dfrac{12}{.75}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no its then 3/4Y12 = 12 you add 12 to both sides and its 3/4Y = 24 you divide btoh sides by 3/4 and its Y = 32
