Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[3(y5)=12\] First off, you can begin by applying distributive property to simplify the expression and make it into more simpler terms: \[3y15=12\] Then isolate the 3y: \[3y=12+15\] which simplifying is: \[3y=3\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You're supposed to get y alone so you divide the three off the y because its multiplying but you have to do what you did to one side to the other side, and 3 divided by 3 is 1.
