yess! subtract y from both sides, then divide 5y by x20. and I'm gonna change my answer. y=1/5x+4

So the answer is y=x/5+4 and not y=1/5x+4

you've gotta make sure you put that it's 1/5x. That's important

The goal is to isolate y. x + 5y = 20 Subtract x from both sides. x  x + 5y = x + 20 5y = x + 20 Next divide both sides by 5. y = (x + 20)/5 y = (1/5)(x) + 4
