6-143.

Solve each equation below for the indicated variable. Show all steps. Homework Help ✎

Solve for

*x*: 2*x*+ 22 = 12Solve for

*y*: 2*x − y*= 3Solve for

*x*: 2*x*+ 15 = 2*x*− 15Solve for

*y*: 6*x*+ 2*y*= 10

*x* = −5

Add *y* to both sides of the equation.

How can you move 3 to isolate *y* on the right side of the equation?

If you subtract 2*x* from both sides of the equation, what kind of statement is left? Is there any value of *x* that will make this equation true?

*y* = 5 − 3*x*
