    to solve for two unknowns you need two equations

    no other conditions or hints ? 7x+2y = 5 and solve for x then there are infinite values for x by which eqn can be satisfied ,by assuming values for y

    It's been about 12 years since I've taken math, and it was never a subject of my choice, so I am having some difficulties witht this right now.

    I think maybe they are just asking you to rearrange ?

    if so, all x's to one side , everything else to the other, what do you get.
