Chapter 9 - Basic Algebra - 9.7 Solving Equations with Several Steps - 9.7 Exercises: 1

Answer

-4y + 10 = 2 Subtract 10 from both sides of the equation. -4y + 10 -10 = 2 -10 -4y = -8 Note You could also add 1-102 to both sides as the first step. The result is the same.

Work Step by Step

-4y + 10 = 2 Step 1 : Add or subtract the same amount on both sides of the equation so that the variable term ends up by itself on one side. Subtract 10 from both sides of the equation. -4y + 10 -10 = 2 -10 -4y = -8 Note You could also add 1-102 to both sides as the first step. The result is the same.
