the problem is: x=2+3/y and I have to solve for y

I get rid of the denominator y and multiply it with X...so it looks like

xy=5

then just divide by x on both sides for a final answer of y=5/x

**bobpursley**, Sunday, September 1, 2013 at 6:09pmYou are correct, if the problem was

x=(2+3)/y

Now if it this..

x=2 + 3/y

subtract 2 from both sides

multiply both sides by y

divide both sides by x-2
