# How do you solve 12y+8=10?

Dec 28, 2016

$\textcolor{n a v y}{\text{y = 0.16666}}$

#### Explanation:

$\textcolor{\mathmr{and} a n \ge}{\text{Subtract 8 on both sides:}}$

$12 y + \cancel{8} = 10$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{a a a} - \cancel{8}$ $\textcolor{w h i t e}{a} - 8$

8 cancels out on the left side, and when you subtract 8 from 10 on the right you get 2:

$12 y = 2$

$\textcolor{b l u e}{\text{Divide both sides by 12 to get y by itself.}}$

(cancel"12"y)/cancel"12"=(2)/12

Now you are just left with $y$ on the left side and 0.1666 on the right side.

Thus,
$\textcolor{m a \ge n t a}{\text{y = 0.16666}}$
