- Rushwr

- anonymous

ok so frist u do is 4*1=4

- Rushwr

okai

- madhu.mukherjee.946

is this simple solve?

- anonymous

then u 4+8

- Rushwr

yep/

- anonymous

=12

- Rushwr

actually it's like this 4(y-1) = 4y-4 !

- anonymous

so not 4*1

- madhu.mukherjee.946

4y-4+8-2y+20
2y=-24
y=-12

- madhu.mukherjee.946

am i correct?

- anonymous

4y-4+0+8=8-2y=6

- Rushwr

@madhu.mukherjee.946 hey would you like to guide her little bit more. She is still small so if u don't mind please help her though!

- madhu.mukherjee.946

@Rushwr sure!:)

- anonymous

@Rushwr am i right

- madhu.mukherjee.946

@limecake08 if you subtract 2y from 4y what do you get

- sohailiftikhar

is this an equation ?

- sohailiftikhar

where is the right hand side what is in right hand side huh ?

- madhu.mukherjee.946

@limecake08 and if add 8 to 20 and suntract 4 from that then what do you get?

- anonymous

can u please slow down i am panicking

- madhu.mukherjee.946

ok first subtract 2y from 4y what do you get

- anonymous

it does not go u have to do 4y-2y =2

- madhu.mukherjee.946

yes it will give you 2y

- anonymous

so next

- madhu.mukherjee.946

do 20+8-4

- sohailiftikhar

ok wait 4(y-1)+8-2y+20=0 is this a equation ?

- anonymous

24

- madhu.mukherjee.946

good

- madhu.mukherjee.946

so now 2y+24=0
in an equation you always have the right hand side =0

- anonymous

26

- sohailiftikhar

who sais that ?

- sohailiftikhar

said * that you always have a right hand side zero ?

- madhu.mukherjee.946

no not 26,you cannot add 2y and 24 because 2y is a variable and 24 is a constant@limecake08

- madhu.mukherjee.946

any term you see with an alphabet attached to it is known as a variable and any number is known as a constant

- madhu.mukherjee.946

in an equation you always have to solve for that variable by keeping it in the left hand side and taking the constant to the right hand side

- madhu.mukherjee.946

do you understand?

- anonymous

no sorry

- anonymous

did u say 11 was the aswer

- madhu.mukherjee.946

which part do you not understand

- madhu.mukherjee.946

no -12 is the answer

- anonymous

can u right dow the work

- madhu.mukherjee.946

okay

- madhu.mukherjee.946

4y-4+8-2y+20=0
2y+24=0
2y=-24
y=-12

- anonymous

thanks
