  2. I answered this down below when she posted first.
    x+2y=8
    x-x+2y=8-x
    2y=8-x
    2y/2=8/2-x This line and next - divide x by 2
    y=4-x
    y=4-x/2 Error fixed.
    y=4-1/2x

  3. I see from Damon's answer that I should have gone through the math. I didn't do that. I just looked at the answer and wrote my response. Therefore, I didn't pick up on the errors in the work. I also suspect I should have written the asnwer as y = 4-(1/2)x to reduce any doubt as to the meaning of the equation.
