How to solve this problem.
minus 3x to both sides
-Y=12-3X. THEN DIVIDE BY -1 TO BOTH SIDES
hard difficult immposible fail impassible
I think probably you are supposed to get +y alone on the left
first add -3x to both sides
-3x + 3x - y = -3x + 12
-y = -3x + 12
but we want +y, not - y
So multiply every term on both sides by -1
(-1)(-y) = (-1)(-3x) + (-1)(12)
y = 3x - 12
