maths 
chloe,
thankyou so much i find them very hard

maths 
Ms. Sue,
You're welcome.

maths 
chloe,
sorry can i ask you one more question related to that one if y=3 what is the value of x

maths 
Ms. Sue,
I showed you how to do the first one. You try this one; I'll be glad to check your answer.

maths 
chloe,
but im not sure can you show me you don't need to tell me the answer

maths 
Ms. Sue,
y=1/2x  1
3 = 1/2x  1
Add 1 to both sides of the equation. 
maths 
chloe,
is it 0 or 2

maths 
chloe,
is it

maths 
drwls,
Neither 0 nor 2.
If you do as MsSue suggested, you should get
2 = (1/2)x
Now double both sides for the value of x 
maths 
chloe,
i don't fully understand

maths 
chloe,
what sides do i double

maths 
chloe,
its ok i got the answer

maths 
Ms. Sue,
See  we knew you could do it! :)
