Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0switch the x & y x = 5  3y subtract 5 from each side x  5 = 3y divide by 3 on each side so (x5)/3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\begin{aligned}x5&=3y \\ {x 5 \over 3}&=y \end{aligned}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Or,\[{x + 5 \over 3} = y\]Or\[{5  x \over 3} = y\]
