Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.07x+2y=5 Subtract the 2y on both sides 7x=2y+5 Now divided both sides of the equation by 7 x=(2/7)y+5/7

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3See I give you similar example: Suppose we have: 5x+4y=10 Now subtract 4y both the sides: dw:1344575744194:dw Now to find x we must get rid of 5 attached to it so divide by 5 both the sides: dw:1344575819560:dw Getting @rannsan
