    sure, \(3x+5y=1\) for example. then choose one of the variables and solve for it. let's say you choose to solve for x you want to rewrite the equation so you are just left with x on one side of the equal sign, and everything else on the other \[\Large x=\ \ \ \dots\]

    \[3x+5y=1\\ \implies 3x= 1-5y \\ \large \implies x={1-5y \over3}\]
