 Question 62327: Solve for y: (1/3)(3y + 12) = – 5y – 4(y – 6) Solve for x: (4 + 3x)/5 + (7 – x)/3 = (7/15) Answer by jai_kos(139)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Given (1/3)(3y + 12) = – 5y – 4(y – 6) y + 4 = -5y -4y + 24 y + 4 = - 9y + 24 y + 9y = 24 - 4 10 y = 20 y = 20 /10 y = 2 Solve for x: (4 + 3x)/5 + (7 – x)/3 = (7/15) Given (4 + 3x)/5 + (7 – x)/3 = (7/15) Multiply the above equation with 15, we get (4 + 3x) * 3 + ( 7 - x) * 5 = 7 12 + 9x + 35 - 5x = 7 47 + 4x -7 = 0 40 + 4x = 0 10 + x = 0 x = -10
