# What is the value of y in the equation y=2/3x - 12 when x=-18?

Mar 3, 2018

$y = - 24$

#### Explanation:

$y = \frac{2}{3} x - 12$

$y = \frac{2}{3} \left(- 18\right) - 12$

$y = - \frac{36}{3} - 12$

$y = - 12 - 12$

$y = - 24$

$y = - 24$

#### Explanation:

$y = \frac{2}{3} \cdot \left(- 18\right) - 12$
$y = - \frac{36}{3} - 12$
$y = - 12 - 12$
$y = - 24$
