I was born 2003.

Is this right?

y - 1776 = 2003

or 2003 - 1176 = y

6th grade math. Equation help.

Or ? Please help??

**Ms. Sue**, Monday, November 12, 2012 at 2:32pmYou can easily estimate that the difference is a little over 200 years.

Which process will produce that answer?

**Sam**, Monday, November 12, 2012 at 2:47pmI'm suppose to create my own equation like the one I showed you above. Is the first one right? It is solving subtraction equations where I add or subtract each side to undo the subtraction. Does this make sense?

So if I were to say y + 1776 = 2003 this would be the right way right?

**Sam**, Monday, November 12, 2012 at 2:55pmy + 1776 -1776 = 2003 - 1776

y = 227

y + 1776 = 2003

227 + 1776 = 2003

2003 = 2003 Checked

But how is this correct true?
