Solve Equations of Type: ay = b, y/a = b Math Help Fun Game Tips:  An equation has an equal sign '=' between its left side and right side. Example: 6y=42 Finding the answer to an equation, is called solving the equation. To solve 6y=42, you need to isolate the variable y by itself on one side of the equation.  For an equation such as 6y=42, the answer y=7 is the value of the variable y that satisfies the equation. To satisfy an equation means to make its left side value equal its right side value. When you check the answer y=7, the left side value of 6y evaluates as 6 times y = 6 times 7 = 42. When you check the right side value of 6y=42, it is already 42 with no evaluation work needed.  The answer y=7 that satisfies the equation 6y=42 can be called the solution or root of the equation.  When solving an equation, you treat both its left side and its right side equally. For example, if you divide the left side of 6y=42 by 6, then you also divide the right side by 6. To solve 6y=42, a complete solution includes the step 6y/6=42/6 before writing the final step y=7. Notice that to remove 6 from 6y, you use the inverse of multiplication, namely division.  Similarly, the standard method for solving an equation such as w/8 = 3 to find the value of w is to show the step (w/8)x8 = 3x8 before stating the final answer w=24. Notice that to remove the 8 from w/8, you use the inverse of dividing by 8, namely multiplying by 8.  Refresh/Reload the web page to start over again.
