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
    )
