6y-8=-6+3y+13

heres what ive done so far...not good.

6y-8=-6+3y+13

6y-8=7+3y

-6y -6y

8=7-3y

**Penny**, Saturday, January 31, 2009 at 11:45pmOk I think this is how it goes:

6y-8=-6+3y+13

First add 8 to both sides

6y=15+3y

Next subtract your 3y from both sides

3y=15

so y must = 5

3(5)= 15

I think this is right

**amy**, Saturday, January 31, 2009 at 11:56pmdo you combine like terms before you add the 8 to both sides?

**drwls**, Sunday, February 1, 2009 at 1:10amThe order of operations will not affect the answer, but it is best to "clean up" the equation first by combining terms, so the next step to perform will be easier to figure out.
