Please give me the steps so I know how to do the other problems on my worksheet too, thanks.

2(3+2x)+y=3(x-4)

I'm at a total loss of how to do this. (I haven't been in algebra since last year) Thanks! :D

I don't think you can directly solve x and y in this question.

2(3+2x)+y = 3(x-4)

Expand (multiply the number outside the brackets to the ones inside, take care of signs):

6+4x+y = 3x-12

Collect the like terms on to one side, take care of signs, if it is "-12" you add it to the 6.

18+x+y=0

You can vary the equation to suit your answer's form.

e.g.

y=-18-x etc.
