Question

solve 2/3 - 6y = - 1 5/6

2 Answer

  • Answer:

    y = 19/36

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Assuming that what you want is the value of y, you can pass all the right side stuff to the left, and the y to the right:

    2/3 + 15/6 = 6y

    Then you can sum the fractions on the left by using the same denominators:

    4/6 + 15/6 = 6y       ==>      19/6 = 6 * y

    then  you can pass the 6 that is multiplying on the right to the left - now dividing:

    y = 19/36

  • Answer:

      y = 5/12

    Step-by-step explanation:

      2/3 - 6y = -1 5/6 . . . . . given

      4 -36y = -11 . . . . . . . . . multiply by 6

      15 = 36y . . . . . . . . . . add 36y+11

      15/36 = y = 5/12 . . . . divide by 36, reduce the fraction

    Check

      2/3 -6(5/12) = -1 5/6

      4/6 -15/6 = -11/6 . . . . true
