Solve the inequality. Show your work.
6y – 8 ≤ 10
This is what i got. Am i right or am i wrong?
6y 8 ≤ 10
6y 6
8 4
+8 12
y = 12
plug in 12 in place of the y
6+12 7 ≤ 10
6+ 12 7 is less then equal to 10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1435874492127:dw So in this step, you did 6y on both sides.. remember that you first need to subtract the single integer before doing anything to the coefficients.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Even when you did "6y" on both sides, you should have included your "y" with the 6.. you can't just get rid of y.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No, you need to get rid of any number that doesn't have a variable with it.. regardless if it is negative or not.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now we need to isolate the y variable. Do you have an idea as to how to do that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If it's not subtracting it, then no.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1435874740349:dw You need to divide my 6 on both sides so the y is by itself. Since it is 6 times y, dividing 6y by 6 would make it just y.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you do something to one side of the inequality, you must do it on the other, too.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes.. but I need to apply INVERSE operations to GET RID of it.
