# How do you solve 4y+13=37?

Jul 20, 2016

$\textcolor{p u r p \le}{\text{y=6}}$

#### Explanation:

$\textcolor{\in \mathrm{di} g o}{\text{Subtract 13 on both sides:}}$

$4 y + \cancel{13} = 37$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{a a} - \cancel{13} - 13$

13 cancels out on the left side, and when you subtract 13 from 37 on the right side you obtain 24:

$4 y = 24$

$\textcolor{g r e e n}{\text{Divide both sides 4 to get y by itself.}}$

$\frac{\cancel{\text{4}} y}{\cancel{4}} = \frac{24}{4}$

Now you are just left with $y$ on the left side and 6 on the right side.

Thus,
$\textcolor{red}{\text{y=6}}$
