solve the equation
y + 0.4 = 0.6(y+ 2)


Expert Answer

Step 1

We have

y+0.4 = 0.6(y+2)

Open the bracket, we get

y+0.4 = 0.6y+1.2

Step 2

Subtract 0.6y and 1.2 in above equation, we get

y+0.4-0.6y-1.2 = 0.6y+1.2-0.6y-1.2

0.4y-0.8 = 0

Step 3

Now adding 0.8 on both side in above equation, we...
