  • IT means that u need to subtract 4 from 3/7 of y i.e

    3/7 of y = 3Y/7

    subtract 4 from it we get

    {(3Y/7)- 4}

    Hence the answer

  • Try doing these style of problems one word at a time.

    4 less means we're subtracting 4 from something

    3/7 of y is just 3/7*y

    Therefor

    3/7*y-4

    is our expression

  • The other answers are correct but they could have more explicitlyy answered your questions:

    The "of" essentially means that you are multiplying the fraction (three sevenths) and the variable (y).

    (3/7)*y - 4

    Source(s): answers are great, learning is better
  • 3/7*y - 4

  • 3/7y - 4
