Can someone please check this for mistakes please?

y=4(x+3)-2x
y=4x+3-2x
y=2x+3
2x+3=y
2x=y-3
x=y/2-3

Hopefully I have rearranged the formula y=4(x+3)-2x to express x in terms of y.

  • Math -

    The first step is wrong
    4(x+3) does not equal 4x + 3.

  • Math -

    Y-4(X+3)-2X
    Y=4X+12-2X
    Y=2X+12
    2X=Y-12
    X=Y/2-6

    Can someone please check this to see if I have reduced to simplest terms: {(-x-y)X(x-y)}/{(x-y)^2 + (x+y)^2} I get -1/2 (x-y)(x+y)divided by (x^2+y^2). Is this right and if so, can it be simplified any more?
