hi, i need help with solving this equation for "y"
2x+3y=2
2x+3y=2
Get y on one side. Subtract 2x from both sides.
2x2x+3y=22x
combine terms.
3y=22x
Divide both sides by 3.
3y/3 = (22x)/3
y = ??
how do you get 22x to divide by 3?
I would just leave it as (22x)/3 but if you wish to divide it, divide each number within the parentheses by 3.
2/3 (2/3)x
