x + 15 = 85

- 15 -15 (subtract 15 from both sides of equation to get x alone and keep equation equal.)

x=70

4y + 5x = -7

divide everything by 4 to get y alone

4y/4 + 5x/4 = -7/4

y + 5x/4 = -7/4

subtract 5x/4 from both sides of equation

y +5x/4 = -7/4

-5x/4 -5x-4

________________

y = -5x -7 / 4

-5x - 7
