how do I do this
Solve for x. 3x – 2y = 6
Add 2y to both sides and then divide both sides by 3, to give you just "x' on the left side.
so is this how i work it out
3x2y=6
3x 2y= 6 2y
3x=62y
x= 2 +2y
No.
Add 2y to both sides.
3x 2y+2y= 6 +2y
3x=6+2y
divide both sides by three.
3x/3 = 6/3 +2y/3
x=2+ 2/3 y
You made a lot of errors adding and dividing.
No. You did not add 2y to both sides you subtracted. Your subsequent algebraic manipulations are also all wrong. Here is what you should have done.
3x  2y = 6
3x = 6 + 2y
x = 2 + 2y/3
It appears to me that you would benefit from a tutor. Discuss this with your mom. Probably another student in your class...your teacher can suggest one. You seem to be trying, but are missing a lot of details.
