 Question 589078: I am freaking lost. I am taking survey of mathematics and I am at a loss. I have 20 problems due tomorrow and am stuck on #5 have been for days. 4x - 4y = 1 I. Need the solution for y. How am I going to make it through this term it is only week three?Answer by ankor@dixie-net.com(16527)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!4x - 4y = 1 I. Need the solution for y. use the rules of algebra to isolate y Add 4y to both sides 4x - 4y + 4y = 1 + 4y 4x = 4y + 1 Subtract 1 from both sides 4x - 1 = 4y + 1 - 1 4x - 1 = 4y y has to have coefficient of 1, divide both sides by 4 x - = y which gives you 1x - = 1y or we can just write it x - = y usually written y = x - : Don't be discouraged, it's really not that hard, just remember whatever you do to one side of an equation, do the same to the other side
