Solve each of the following equations for the indicated variables. Show all of your steps.

y=2x-5

It indicates to solve for x. So we want to get x by itself, not y.

So you want to move everything but the x to the other side.

Add 5 to both sides.

y+5=2x

Then divide both sides by two.

y/2 + 5/2=x

Simple as that :)
