    9x+3 y = ------ x+3 inverse is: 9y+3 x = ------ y+3 solve for "y" to get it looking "proper"

    that is a good first step, yes \[x(y+3)=9y+3\] next step is to multiply out on the left of the equal sign

    xy + 3x = 9y + 3 get all the y parts to one side and everything else to the other so that we can factor out a common y

    xy + 3x = 9y + 3 xy - 9y = 3 - 3x y(x - 9) = 3 - 3x and divide off the x-9
