I agree with John R. A "systems of equations" problem needs more details. Otherwise, this is just a linear equation (y = mx + b) [where y is a function of x m is the slope of the line and b is y-intercept] (3y + x + 5) - (x +5) = 3 - (x + 5) 3y = -x - 2 3y / 3 = (-x - 2)/ 3 y = (-1/3)x - 2/3 Please provide more details if this is not a linear equation. Thank you!

3*0+(-2)+5=3

Three times nothing =0 This clears the first part of the equation. Then it is down to what +5=3 The answer is simply (-2) +5=3.

## Comments

You list this as systems of equations, but you have only given one equation. Is there another equation or more instructions about what you are doing?
