    hi everyone,
    I just thought of an equation and try to solve it , the equation is 3(y)-4(x)=2(y-2)+3(x+y/3).
    the answers I have had so far of both equations are not the same, can someone help me out,
    I have a questions , what steps under what topic in math can be used to solve the equation

    After a bit of algebra, you have one equation in two unknowns. You can't solve for the unknowns unless you think up another equation.

    You need to clarify what you are talking about. You displayed one equation and are asking about two equations.
    Show what you have done - it would us understand what you are trying to do.

    All that is needed it simple algebra. What you have written is true for all y and x=4/7.

    Show us what you are doing.
