Solve the equations below for the indicated variable. Homework Help ✎
6x − 3y = 12 for y
y = −2x + 4 for x
4 − 2(3x + 2) = 4x − 10 for x
= for x
Solve for the variable by isolating it on one side.
−3y = 12 − 6x
Now divide both sides by −3.
Follow the steps outlined in part (a).
First distribute to remove the parenthesis, then combine like terms. To finish, follow steps in part (a).
x = 1
Multiply by a common denominator to remove the fractions. Then follow the steps in part (a).
