math correction

solve for x:
3x - 2y = 6


i need help in solving this:

the possible answers has to be one of these:
A)2y +6 divided by 3
b)3x -6 divided by 2
C) 2 + 2y
D) 2/3y + 6

but how i keep trying and i don't get non of these.

Add 2y to both sides of the equation. That will give you
3x = 2y + 6
Then divide both sides of the new equation by 3 and you will see what x is.

It will be one of the choices.

  1. the answer is x=2+(2/3)y

    3x - 2y = 6
    +2y +2y

    3x = 6 + 2y

    3 3 3

    x = 2 + (2/3)y
