Solve the equation or inequality for
3(2y-4)=9-3(y+1)The answer is 2. How do you work it out to get the answer?

How do you work it out????

• Math -

first one:
3(2y-4)=9-3(y+1)
6y - 12 = 9 - 3y - 3
6y + 3y = 6+12
9y = 18
y = 2

2nd:
(x+5)(x-3)=9
x^2 - 3x + 5x - 15 = 9
x^2 + 2x - 24 = 0
(x+6)(x-4) = 0
so x+6 = 0 or x-4 = 0
x = -6 or x = 4
