What number must be placed in the box in the equation below to produce an equation that has more than one solution:\(\[\frac{1}{2}y + \frac{1}{4} = \frac{1}{12}\left(3+\boxed{\phantom{2}}~y\right)?\] \)

(1/2) y + (1/4)  = (1/12) ( 3 + ( ) y)

 

(1/2)y  + (1/4)   = 3/12  + ( ) y / 12

 

(1/2)y  + 1/4  =1/4  +  ( ) y  /12       subtract 1/4 from both sides

 

(1/2)y =  (6 /12) y

 

6  wil produce infinite solutions
