    \(2bx-b=-5\) Solve for \(x\)? Leaving \(b\) as a variable?

    Well, solve for \(x\) and leave it in terms of \(b\)?

    You basically isolate the term(s) that include the desired variable, take away the other stuff that the variable multiplies with, and divide the other side by it.

    wouldn't the b = 1b so it would be x=-5/2b instead?

    no, because the numerator has two different terms on it. you can't do that
