Which of the following equations is equivalent to 1/2x - 2/3y = 5

x - 2y = 30

4x - 3y = 30

3x - 4y = 30

Please explain how you got it, and please actually help me.

x - 2y = 30

30 changes to 5 by dividing by 6, therefore:

3x - 4y = 30 is the correct equation, because

if you divide each term in it by 6 you get

1/2x - 2/3y = 5
