6y+8=-3y-28 Here is what I did
6y+8-8=-3y-28-8
6y=-3y+20
6y-(-3y)=-3y-(-3y)+20
3y/3 = 20/3
y=6.66666666667
what did I do wrong

  • Pre-Algebra - ,

    you added 8 and made it 20 when really it should be -36 on the right side

  • Pre-Algebra - ,

    6y = -3y -36
    +3y +3y

    9y = -36
    divide both sides by 9

    y = -4
