# If 6(y-3) = -3(x+1), what does y equal?

Sep 5, 2017

Write y as a function of x...

#### Explanation:

multiply through:

$6 y - 18 = - 3 x - 3$

$6 y = - 3 x + 15$

Divide both sides by 6:

$y = - \frac{3}{6} x + \frac{15}{6}$

...and BAM.

your instructor might want you to further simplify:

$y = \frac{15 - 3 x}{6}$

Good luck!
