 Question 327326: 6y+y(4-2)=12Answer by jvan(28)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Hi ^.^!!! I'm guessing we have to solve for y in this equation. Whenever you see a problem like this, you should remember the nemonic, "Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally". This stands for Parenthesis, Exponent, Multiplication, Division, Addition, and Subtraction. ^.^ This is the special order that you should apply to all math problems. Let's begin! The first thing you might do is combine the terms in the parenthesis. then becomes , which can actually be written as . We can skip the exponents, multiplication, and division steps since there aren't any of those. Next we add like terms to get . This leaves us with one last step to get y by itself (I know. It's a bit out of order, but sometimes this happens when you finish the sequence. Use your logic to get the variable by itself =)). We have to divide both sides by 8 to get . ^0^ I hope writing my comments in helps!!! ****---->Please visit my website at http://myonlinetutor.webs.com and become a member to get help directly from me \(^0^)/!
