i don't understand these mmath equations.
1) 6y = 24
2)y / 7 = 2 y=_________

On number one i know that if there is a letter next to a number it means multiplication.and i still don't know how to solve it.

On number two i don't understand anything at all:(

    For number 1 you would do 24 divided by six so y equals 4

    lol what math class are you taking...
    1. you would divide both sides by 6 and you would get y = 4
    2. you would mulitply both sides by 7 to get rid of the fraction...y = 14
