    2x=3y

    You want to get y by itself
    In order to do this you must take the inverse of the coefficient and multiply it by the other side.

    (2x)\frac{1}{3}=y

    Since your multiplying, 2x can go on the numerator.

    \frac{2x(1)}{3}=y]

    anything multiplied by 1 is it's self.


    inverse- The number that if multiplied to the original equals 1.

    coefficient- The number, not the exponent.

    numerator- top part of a simple fraction
