Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@kenna_098 may just suck at maths! To solve this question: subtract 3.4 from each side of the equation and then you can simplify to get the answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I didnt guess... all you had to was subtract 3.4 from both sides It cancels out on the left side so on the right side of the equal sign you subtract 6.853.4 You end up getting 10.25 That means it is answer A That means that I am correct That also means that you are wrong because there is no simplifying involved!!! @MrNood

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The point I am making is that if you just give the answer then the poster has NO WAY of knowing whether you have any idea about how to do the question. MANY answers here are just plain wrong. you 'simplified when you completed the subtraction: 3.4+y= 6.85 3.4+y3.4 = 6.853.4 SIMPLIFIES TO y= 10.25
