You just telling me unfortunately wont help me any on a test so would like to learn it. By the way, we are solving for Y on all of them I just couldn't put them on the same line without it messing up the formatting.

Firstly I would like a answer check on this: Y =

3(x-1)+1

---------

2-(x-1)

which simplified should be: Y =

3x-2

-----

x+3

Mr F says: The numerator should be 3 - x.
