2+3x=4y+5z
______
6
for Z... All answers are some variation of
z=12+18x+24y
_____________
5
I'm doing the line system because I was afraid it could be confused with just 5z/6 instead of 4y+5z all over 6.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay, I just wasn't sure if putting those in ()'s changed the equation at all.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1anyways, first you multiply both sides by 6 2+3x=(4y+5z)/6 6*(2+3x)=6*(4y+5z)/6 12+18x=4y+5z

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Should I not have multiplied 5 and 6? Or what am I supposed to do now?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1when you multiply (4y+5z)/6 by 6, the two '6' terms divide to 1 1 times anything is the same number, so the '6's go away more or less
