    yes, but the options for my answer are really confusing me they are: y = 4x − 2 y = 2x − 4 y = −3(x − 4) y = 3(x + 4)

    how do you solve this problem? Solve the following for y: −6x + 2y = 8

    yes- y = −6x + 8 y = 6x + 8 y = −3x + 4 y = 3x + 4

    \(-6x+2y=8\) first you want to move -6x to move it, you add +6x that gives you \(2y=8+6x\) next you want to isolate y and get rid of 2 to do that, divide 2 by each number 2/2 = 0 8/2=4 6x/2=3x \(y=4+3x\)
