Term
Solve the linear equation for "y"
3x + 2y = 8 

Definition
3x + 2y = 8
(Subtract 3x from both sides)
2y = 3x + 8
(Divide everything by 2)
y = (3/2)x + 4
Answer: y = (3/2)x + 4 


Term
Solve the linear equation for "y"
2x  y = 5 

Definition
2x  y = 5
(Subtract 2x from both sides)
y = 2x + 5
(Divide everything by 1)
y = 2x  5
Answer: y = 2x  5 


Term
Solve the linear equation for "y"
12x + 6y = 12 

Definition
12x + 6y = 12
(Add 12x to both sides)
6y = 12x + 12
(Divide everything by 6)
y = 2x + 2
Answer: y = 2x + 2 


Term
Solve the linear equation for "y"
x  y = 3 

Definition
x  y = 3
(Subtract x from both sides)
y = x + 3
(Divide both sides by 1)
y = x  3
Answer: y = x  3 


Term
Solve the linear equation for "y"
y  2x = 3 

Definition
y  2x = 3
(Add 2x to both sides)
y = 2x + 3
Answer: y = 2x + 3 


Term
Solve the linear equation for "y"
4x +2y = 5


Definition
4x + 2y = 5
(Add 4x to both sides)
2y = 4x + 5
(Divide both sides by 2)
y = (4/2)x + (5/2)
(Simplify)
y = 2x + (5/2)
Answer: y = 2x + (5/2) 


Term
Solve the linear equation for "y"
3 + y = 5x


Definition
3 + y = 5x
(Subtract 3 from both sides)
y = 5x  3
Answer: y = 5x  3 


Term
Solve the linear equation for "y"
5  y = x


Definition
5  y = x
(Add 5 to both sides)
y = x + 5
(Divide everything by a 1)
y = x  5
Answer: y = x  5 


Term
Solve the linear equation for "y"
x  2y = 6 

Definition
x  2y = 6
(Add x to both sides)
2y = x  6
(Divide everything by a 2)
y = (1/2)x + 3
Answer: y = (1/2)x + 3 


Term
Solve the linear equation for "y"
5 + 3x = y 

Definition
5 + 3x = y
(already solved for "y"!)
Answer: y = 3x + 5
