Hi Bailey,
We need to rearrange the given equation so that x is by itself on one side of the = sign. To start, we can factor x out of the two terms on the left so we have
x(2y-1)=2
Next, we just divide both sides of the equation by the expression in parentheses...

You can think of an angle as a portion of a circle. There are 360 degrees in a complete circle, and 16 degrees is a fraction of that. We can write the fraction as 16/360. That's most of the way to answering the question. All that's left to do is simplify the fraction.
