Solve for y,
xy + x = 3
How do you do this? I can't seem to come up with the correct answer...

How in the world do you do this? I'm so confused. Thank you all for your time and help...
2 < 2x  5 < 3

just isolate all the y terms on te left:
xy = 3x
now divide by x:
y = (3x)/x = 3/x  1
as long as x≠0

2 < 2x  5 < 3
add 5 to all parts:
3+5 = 2x5+5 < 3+5
2 < 2x < 8
now divide by 2:
1 < x < 4
These are not always so simple. You might have to separate into two problems to be solved separately:
2 < 2x5 and 2x5 < 3
