Question #6442d

Feb 1, 2017

$y = \frac{4 x - 6}{2}$

Explanation:

Although we cannot solve for $y$ because we don't know anything about $x$, we can express $y$ in terms of $x$. First, subtract $4 x$ from both sides:

$6 - 4 x = \cancel{4 x} \cancel{- 4 x} - 2 y$

Then, multiply both sides by $- 1$ to get rid of the minus sign on $y$:

$4 x - 6 = 2 y$

Finally, divide both sides by $2$:

$y = \frac{4 x - 6}{2}$.
