If3 x = 12 , what is the value of ?
A)2 12 4 4 8 2
B)
C)
D) The value cannot be determined from the information given.
questionHey please someone provide the solution for this If_2 a − 1 = _4 y , and y ≠ 0 where a ≠ 1, what is y in terms of a? A) y = 2a − 2 B) y = 2a − 4 C) y = 2a − _ 2 1 D) y = _ 2 a + 1
Key: A
Objective: You must complete operations with multiple terms and manipulate an equation to isolate the variable of interest. Explanation:
Choice A is correct. Multiplying both sides of the equation by the denominators of the rational expressions in the equation gives 2y = 4a − 4.
You should then divide both sides by 2 to isolate the y variable, yielding the equation y = 2a − 2. Choice B is incorrect.
This equation may be the result of not dividing both terms by 2 when isolating y in the equation 2y = 4a − 4.
Choice C is incorrect.
This equation may result from not distributing the 4 when multiplying 4 and (a − 1). Choice D is incorrect.
This equation may result from solving 2y = 4a − 4 for a, yielding a = _ 1 2 y + 1.
A misunderstanding of the meaning of variables may have resulted in switching the variables to match the answer choice
