okay so using y = (5/6)x + 3 how do i find the corresponding value for y when x = 12?
here was the previous work to the problem.
5x+6y=18 solve for y
5x + 6y = 18
Subtract 5x from both sides.
6y = 18  5x
Divide by 6
y = (185x)/6
or 3  (5/6)x

Substitute 12 for x, do the computation
3  (5/6)x ,
and you end up with the value of y when x=12. Do you get 7?
