## Answers ( No )

You can set y = to each side of the equation, then multiply by the denominator and put into standard form.

Left side:

.. y = 1/4x -3

.. 4y = x -12 . . . . multiply by 4

.. 4y -x = -12 . . . subtract x

Right side:

.. y = 1/2x +8

.. 2y = x +16 . . . multiply by 2

.. 2y -x = 16 . . . subtract x

These equations correspond to selection B.
