If 3x=Y=12 What does Y=?

Correct me if I'm wrong.

3x= y= 12

-3x -3x -3x

y-3x=12-3x

y=12

It has to equal 12 doesn't it?

Do tell.

Welcome to the boards, rayrayxtreme.

You gave an algebra equation where Y equals 12, yet told us that Y doesn't equal 12.

When a poster showed you how Y equaled 12, you posted that this is the correct answer. Telling everyone that 12 isn't the answer and then saying that it is once someone gives a proof for it is a brainteaser how?

You can answer by sending me a PM. If there's something I'm missing, I'll consider opening this thread back up. Until then:
