How do you solve linear equations like -4x-5y-5 and or -5y-25=-x

  • pre algebra -

    It depends on what you mean by "solve". Do you mean solve for y?

    The first is not an equation, there is no equal sign.
    The second
    add 5y to each side
    -25=-x+5y
    add x to each side
    5y=x-25
    divide each side by 5
    y= x/5 - 5
