**drwls**, Thursday, May 27, 2010 at 2:27pmIf you want an equation for x in terms of y, subtract 50 from both sides and then divide both sides by 9.

That is not reaaly "solving" for x; you are just rearranging an equation. To get a numerical value for x (and y), you need a second independent equation.
