Well you have a single equation in three unknowns, so that means you can express one variable in terms of the other two. The suggestion seems to indicate expressing y in terms of x and z. So we have to rearrange this\[2x  3y 5z = 16\]to bring y by itself on, say, the LHS :\[3y = 16 2x +5z\]\[y= (16)(3)2x/(3)+5z/(3)\]thus\[y = 16/3 + (2/3)x+(5/3)z\]giving the final form of answer as :\[x = s\]\[y =16/3 + (2/3)s+(5/3)t \]\[z=t\]
