Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\frac{ 3y  8 }{ 12 }  \frac{ y }{ 5 }\] \[= \frac{ y }{ 5 }  \frac{ y }{ 5 } = 0\]

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?

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1OKAY... Cross multiply... You know how to do that right?

Defiance

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You get \15y  40 = 12y\]

Defiance

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You get the 40 cause you cross multiplied 5 to 8.

Defiance

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Can you solve form here? Or no.

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

Defiance

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Move the 12y over to the 15y. To get \[15y 12y = 40\]

Defiance

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Solver it. Which is simple \[3y = 40\]

Defiance

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Move the 3 back to the 40 to make the faction.

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

anonymous

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The answer is \[40/3 or 13.33\]

Defiance

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.13y8/12 = y /5 5( 3y  8) = 12y 15y 40 =12y 15y 12y =40 3y=40
