I can't figure out this problem:

AX+BY=C SOLVE FOR Y

AX+BY=C SOLVE FOR Y
subtract AX from both sides.
AX - AX + BY = C - AX
combine terms.
BY = C - AX
divide both sides by B
BY/B = (C-AX)/B
Y = (C-AX)/B

    2x + 1/2 = x/2 + 1/3 Subtract the x/2 from both sides to get 2x + 1/2 - x/2 = + 1/3 Now subtract 1/2 from both sides to get 2x + - x/2 = 1/3 - 1/2 Then combine terms on both sides and solve for x. Subtract the x/2 from both sides
