 Question 455873: How would I solve this equation? I have to solve for y: 20 + 3/4(12+y) = 3/2y - 10 Please help me out! :) Also, if you can show the steps? Thanks a bunch!!Answer by stanbon(57290)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!20 + 3/4(12+y) = 3/2y - 10 --- Add 10 to both sides: ---- 30 + (3/4)(12+y) = (3/2)y ---- 30 + 9 + (3/4) = (6/4)y ==== 39 = (3/4)y --- 13 = (1/4)y y = 52 ================ Cheers, Stan H. ============
