3x - 2y = 6

i need help in solving this:

the possible answers has to be one of these:
A)2y +6 divided by 3
b)3x -6 divided by 2
C) 2 + 2y
D) 2/3y + 6

but how i keep trying and i don't get non of these.

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

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.
