Solve for y in the following equation: 5x-2y=10
Step 1: Subtract 5x from both sides of the equal sign 5x – 2y = 10 -5x -5x The x coefficient should cancel out Step 2: Rewrite the leftovers of the equation -2y= 10 - 5x Step 3: To get y by itself, divide every coefficient by -2 -2y = 10 – 5x -2 -2 -2 Step 4: Divide *Remember rules for multiplying and dividing positive or negative numbers - When signs are both positive, the resulting answer is positive - When signs are different, the resulting answer is negative So, -2y/-2 = 1y or y 10/-2= -5. and -5x/-2 is simply (5/2)x Step 5: Write the final product. Done y= -5 + 5/2x
