Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac1{x + 5} = \frac2y\] Is that correct? You really should either use the Equation editor or parentheses to make the meaning of your equations clear!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0just cross multiply so the 1st equation becomes \[y = 2(x + 5)\] now just expand and simplify to the equation to be in the form of y = mx + c same process for the 2nd equation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac3x=\frac1y\]Multiply both sides by \(xy\) and you get \[3y = x\]\[y=\frac x3\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0which is \[y=(\frac{1}3)x+b\]where \(b=0\)
