Solve each literal equation for the indicated variable.

4x-5y=10 for y (the answer is y=4/5x-2) How do you solve this?

• Math -

4x-5y=10

First subtract 4x from both sides, which will give you -5y = -4x+ 10.

Next, divide both sides by -5 as follows:
-5y/-5 = -4x/-5 + 10/-5

You will get: y = 4/5(x) - 2

• Math -

1,x+b=a

• solve each literal equation for the indicated variable -

P#4s (for s
)
