Hi I'm Aurora I hope this helps. Equation. 5(Y+10)=40 Distribute 5. 5Y+50=40 Subtract 50 from 40. 5Y=-10 Divide by 5. Y= -2 Check Work: Add -2+10. 5(8)= 40 Multiply 5*8. 40=40 It checks 10/29/2013 | Aurora N. Comment
Hi Kristin; 5(y+10)=40 Our first priority would be to divide both sides by 5... [5(y+10)]/5=40/5 y+10=8 Next, we will subtract 10 from both sides... -10+y+10=8-10 y=-2 Let's check our work... 5(y+10)=40 5(-2+10)=40 5(8)=40 10/8/2013 | Vivian L. Comment
