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 :)
