y3=1/2(x6) "finding the value of a variable"
x=2 I know the answer is 1, but how do I work the problem to get 1. This problem is in our text book and in the back it states the answer is 1. I tried working the problem serval times and I do not come up with one.

y3=1/2(x6) , if x = 2
y3 = (1/2)(26)
y3 = (1/2)(4)
y3 = 2
y = 2 + 3
y = 1

Thank you Reiny. I see where I was making my mistake. I was multiplying 1/2*2 and 1/2*6. instead of 26 then multiplying 1/2. Thank you for your help.
