# How do you solve for y : 4x- 3y = 12?

Apr 10, 2015

$4 x - 3 y = 12$

Rearrange the equation so that $3 y$ is isolated from other values:

$4 x - 12 = 3 y$

Now, we can find $y$ by dividing the all values in the equation by 3.

$\frac{4 x - 12}{3} = \frac{3 y}{3}$

$\frac{4}{3} x - 4 = y$

$y = \frac{4}{3} x - 4$
