    Smile Solve the following equation

    Hi,
    I am taking an online Data Management course and am quite a bit rusty on solving equations.

    The equation is
    3y+6/4 - y-3/4 = 3y/4

    3y+6 divided by 4 minus y-3 divided by 4 is EQUAL TO 3y/4

    The question is: Solve the equation and verify your solution.
    Any help would be appreciated!

    since everything is over 4, you can multiply both sides by 4 to get rid of the fractions
    now you have: 3y+6 -(y-3) = 3y
    then just multiply the negative into the bracket, bring all the y values to one side and all the constants to the other and you should get y=9
