3y+x+5=3 can you help me solve this?

3y+x+5=3

 

I don't know how to do this, and I was wondering if you could help me step by step.

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?

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.
