# How do you solve 4(y-1) = 2(y+2)?

Mar 18, 2017

$y = 4$

#### Explanation:

$1.$ Distribute the $4$ and the $2$

$4 \left(y\right) + 4 \left(- 1\right) = 2 \left(y\right) + 2 \left(2\right)$

$4 y - 4 = 2 y + 4$

$2.$ Bring all factors to one side

$4 y - 2 y = 4 + 4$

$2 y = 8$

$y = \frac{8}{2}$

$y = 4$

ANSWER: $\text{ } y = 4$
