Rewrite the equation as a function -3x+4y=11 If you want to consider y as a function of x, then y = (1/4)(3x +11) One can also write x as a function of y. x = (1/3)(4y - 11)

I made a mistake in my problem . can you take me step by step on how to solve this problem 2x+3y=6 (forx) 2x+3y=6 (forx) (subtract 3y to both sides) 2x=6-3y (divide both sides by 2) x=3-3/2y This what I got.
