help i am stuck :
-8 - 5y = 12 - 9y
i got:
-8-12 -5y = 12-12 - 9y
-20 - 5y = 9y
-20 +20 - 5y - 9y

-8 - 5y = 12 - 9y

-5y + 9y = 12 + 8

4y = 20

y = 5

thanks and to check
-8 -5(5) = 12 -9 (5)
-8-25 = 12 - 45
-33 = -33 true
thanks
got time for 1 more -- please :)

8 - 3 (p-4) = 2p
i got:

8 - 3p - 12 = 2p
now im stuck

You're welcome.

8 - 3 (p-4) = 2p

8 - 3p + 12 = 2p

20 = 2p + 3p

20 = 5p

4 = p

You seem to be forgetting that multiplying two negative numbers produces a positive number. Watch your signs!

wait i think i got it:
8 - 3p -12 = 2p
12 + 8 = 20
20 - 3p = 2p
+3p = +3p
20 = 5p
-------------
5 5

4 = p is that right

Yay! You've got it!

thank you i really glad you cheked my work i feel better now. its clicking
thanks and good night
