Homework Help: algebra1/McDougal Littell

Is the given number a solution of the equation or the inequality?
4y-7=3y-4;3


equation


I think it is the inequality.


Try substituting 3 for y and see what you get.
4*3-7=3*3-4 or 12-7=9-4
Is this a valid equality?
Alternative solution: solve for y
4y-7=3y-4 so
y=3 thus 3 is a solution for the equation.


yes! cuz 4(3)=12-7=5, so 3(3)=9-4=5 so they're both equal see im smart!!!
