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
