Add 2y to both sides of the equation. That will give you
3x = 2y + 6
Then divide both sides of the new equation by 3 and you will see what x is.

It will be one of the choices

I STILL GET THE FOLLOWING:

X =2/3Y + 2

BUT ONE OF MY CLASSMATES SAYS THAT THATS WRONG BECAUSE IT HAS TO BE:
X = 2 +2Y

x = (2/3) y + 2 is the same thing as
x = (2y + 6)/3

Your answer is correct, but the multiple choice to make in this case is (A), which is another way of writing the same thing

Your classmate is wrong

how would you check this:
i mean you know how in alot of equations we can check them how would i do it with something like this.

sorry i didn't realize that my sister posted up something but the previous message is mine. she didn't erase her name.
