# Solve for x in the equation 4x + 6y = 12.?

x = 6 over 4y – 3

x= -6 over 4y + 3

x =3 over 2y – 3

x = -3 over 2y + 3

• Hi,

For this question, divide both sides by 2 to get:

2x + 3y = 6

Subtract 3y from both sides to get:

2x = 6 – 3y

Divide both sides by 2 to get:

x = 3 – [3y/2] <==== FINAL ANSWER

I hope that helps you out! Please let me know if you have any other questions!

• I dont understand the x and y intercept yet this feels like a simultaneous equation to me. the 2d equation is two cases the 1st one. So, 2(2x+3y) = 2(6) = 4x+6y = 12 So 12 = 12

• x=3

• 4x + 6y = 12

4x = 12 – 6y

x = 12 – 6y over 4

x = 2 (6 – 3y) over 2 (2) … factorisation

Cancel out the 2 on top and the 2 below.

You’ll get x = (6 – 3y) over 2

• This is an example of indefinite equation. u can have various solutions to the given equation. The values x=0,y=2 & x=3,y=0 are only two examples. U can treat it as the equatn of a straight line and various values of x,y both integral and fractional satisfy it.

• 4x 6y 12

• 4x + 6y = 12

4x= -6y+12

x=(-6y+12)/4=(-3y+6)/2=-(3/2)(y-2)

None of the above.

• 4x+6y=12

4x=-6y+12

x=-6/ 4y+3

• 4x = 12 – 6y

x = ( 12 – 6y ) / 4

x = ( 6 – 3y ) / 2

x = 3 – (3/2) y

• None of those ,

x = (12 – 6y) / 4
