    Having Difficulty Attacking This Problem

    I have been trying to work out this problem based on examples and cannot seem to work it out entirely with confidence. What is the best strategy for attacking this type of problem?

    Solve: 1.3y + 4.4 = 0.8y + 4.1

    Thanks in advance.

    1.3y + 4.4 = 0.8y + 4.1

    try to bring 0.8y to the left
    try to bring 4.4 to the right

    0.5y = -0.3

    1/0.5y = 2

    0.5y*2=-0.3*2

    y = -0.6
