x/2=3y/5
can you show me how you got the answer please

y=3/4x-2

I don't think it is correct.

Starting over

To solve for y
first multiply both sides by 5

(5)x/2=3y/5 (5)
Cancel 5 on right side to get
5x/2=3y

Now multiply both sides by 1/3 to get

5x/6=y

Can someone show how to this question. Loga(x+3) + Loga(x-3) = 3 I don't know if I'm typing this correctly the a is the base. So, I'm thinking, Loga((x+3)(x-3)) = 3 (x+3)(x-3) = 3^a x^2 - 9 = 3^a, x^2 = 3^a + 9 x = sqrt(3^a + 9)
