1.2(3b-4)=8b-11

2.5(r-1)=2(r-4)-6

3.2y+3=3(y+7)

6b-8 = 8b-11

-2b = -3

b = 3/2

**Lisa**, Wednesday, November 4, 2009 at 6:28pm3. 2y+3 = 3(y+7)

2y+3 = 3y+21

-y = 18

y = -18

I have helped you on # 1 and 3, now I think you can manage doing 2 and 4.

**Lisa**, Wednesday, November 4, 2009 at 6:31pmfor # 3, you can use the distributive property.

2y+3=3(y+7)

2y+3 = 3y+21

subtract 2y from both sides of the equation

3 = y+21

now subtract 21 from both sides

-18 =y

15x +9x = 2+10

24x = 12

x = 1/2
