What is preventing you from swapping x and y and resolving for y?

how would i do that though, tkhunny?

Can you swap x and y? Show me that.

That's it. Now solve for y. You probably want to add 1 to both sides, first.

i got 3x+1=y but I don't think thats right? I did x + 1 = 3/(y-2) multiplied both sides by three (is that correct?) then got 3x + 3 = y -2 3x + 1 = y

x + 1 = 3/(y+2) This is good. Now, there are several ways to go about this next step. The easiset might just be the reciprocal. Example: If z = w, and neither is zero, we can conclude that 1/z = 1/w, right?

uhh, would i make it x + 1 = (y + 2)/3 then?
tkhunny
  • tkhunny
No, you did the reciprocal on only one side. 1/(x+1) = (y+2)/3 Now multiply by 3 and subtract 2.

oh, thanks!

When we did that reciprocal, we introduced something. Did you see it? I gave you a hint in my example with z and w.
