Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To get y by itself look on the left side of the = sign and you see 2x  7y you need to get the y by itself, so the first thing you get rid of is 2x. To get rid of 2x you subtract 2x so 2x  2x  7y = 13  2x adding like terms 7y = 13  2x look at the 7 term again and we need to get rid of the 7 the 7 is multiplied by y so we need to divide by 7 7y = 13  2x   7 7 so y = 13  2x  7
