solve the equation 2x+y=9 for y

bobpursley
subtract 2x from each side.

natalie
i don't understand can you be specific please

Joanne
for 2x+y=9 you do
2 2 (subtract two from both sides)
then you would get:
y=92x
(remember that when you move something to the other side you do the opposite equation)(in this case the opposite of positive is negative, so the 2x becomes negative) 
Joanne
sorry subtract 2x from both sides
my mistake
