    Combine all the like terms on both sides of the equation.

    Can you combine it to this?\[6y + 4 = 8 +4y\]

    When you move a term over the equality sign, you just negate the value.

    For example, \[x + 2y = 3\] is equivalent to \[x = 3 - 2y\]

    Can you try moving the terms over to the other side?

    Notice how in my example, 2y on the left hand side becomes -2y on the right hand side.
