Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Left is 12, right is 5.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.05 x 12 = 60 For this case is the lowest.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So times the rightside by 5 and the left bu 12.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{ 15y8 }{ 60}\] = \[\frac{ y }{ 60 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok I understand so far

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, so subtract 40 from both sides.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0why would I subtract 40? That confuses me

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, lets do it another way sorry.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Lets start with making y/5 = 0.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Pretend the right side is 0.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{ 3y  8 }{ 12 }  \frac{ y }{ 5 }\] \[= \frac{ y }{ 5 }  \frac{ y }{ 5 } = 0\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Subtract y / 5 from both sides.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To make the right = 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{ 3y  8 }{12  \frac{ y }{ 5 } }\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we wouldn't be subtracting y from the 3y up top and the 5 from the 12 down below?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry I just am really confused

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OKAY... Cross multiply... You know how to do that right?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You get \15y  40 = 12y\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You get the 40 cause you cross multiplied 5 to 8.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Can you solve form here? Or no.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0would I subtract 15y to isolate the y on the on the 12y side?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Move the 12y over to the 15y. To get \[15y 12y = 40\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Solver it. Which is simple \[3y = 40\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Move the 3 back to the 40 to make the faction.

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so now I just subtract 3 from both sides to get y=37?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok nm I just saw your other posts

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The answer is \[40/3 or 13.33\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0either one. 13.33 is 40/3 as a decimal.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thank you and I am sorry that I was such a pain

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.03y8/12 = y /5 5( 3y  8) = 12y 15y 40 =12y 15y 12y =40 3y=40

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That just to show the math.
