# what is 3xY=4w solve for y in formula transformation

I can't tell if the 'x' in the question is another variable, or the symbol for 'times'.
Here are the answers both ways:

3 times Y = 4w
Divide each side of the equation by 3 :
Y = (4/3) w

3xY = 4w
Divide each side of the equation by 3 :
xY = (4/3) w
Divide each side by 'x' :
Y = (4w) / (3x)

$3y = 4w \\ y = 4/3 w$

$3xy = 4w \\ 3y=4w/x \\ y = 4w / 3x$
