8x+6 over 2

Thanks so much.

1) (3 + 2y)(-3) + y

Multiply the "-3" through the parentheses, and then combine the "like" terms. How far have you gotten?

2) I'm sorry, but I can't tell what you mean here. If the "2" is under the "6" only, then do the division. Otherwise, factor a "2" out the entire numerator and cancel it off, leaving you with the final answer.
