-Y=12-3X. THEN DIVIDE BY -1 TO BOTH SIDES

SO Y=-12+3X

I think probably you are supposed to get +y alone on the left

first add -3x to both sides

-3x + 3x - y = -3x + 12

or

-y = -3x + 12

but we want +y, not - y

So multiply every term on both sides by -1

(-1)(-y) = (-1)(-3x) + (-1)(12)

or

y = 3x - 12
