  2. 3x + 2y +5x=4
    8x = 4 - 2y
    x = (4 - 2y)/8
    or
    x = 1/2 - (1/4)y

  3. Just noticed the square root part
    Of what are you taking the square root ?
    You will need to use brackets,

    e.g.
    √(3x + 2y) + 5x = 4
    or ...
    √(3x) + 2y + 5x = 4
    or

    can you see the problem if you don't use brackets ??
