    Two equations are shown: Equation 1: 3/4(x−12)=12 Equation 2: 3/4y−12=12 Solve each equation. Then, enter a number in each box to make this statement true. The value of x is: The value of y is:

    The first thing you need to do is multiply each side by the denominator so you can get rid of it.|dw:1437491706702:dw|

    When you did it, did you try and cancel out the 12s on the right side?

    That's where you went wrong, you can't cancel those out. It isn't subtraction throughout, you have to use the distributive property.|dw:1437492831341:dw|

    The outside number has to be multiplied each term inside the parentheses. |dw:1437492979246:dw|

    I am well aware. I have been trying to tell you to distribute. That is the only thing that is holding you up. If you would distribute, you would get the answers pretty quickly.

    I actually already gave you the x value which was the harder of the two to get.
