you have 2 unknown in 1 linear equation this is a mix-match unless your question should say make y the subject of the equation.
i dont get what you are saying
you have 2 unknowns what is x? what is y? cannot solve for 2 unknowns with 1 equation
you just solve for x
ok isolate the term with x to one side of the equation divide by the coefficient of x to make the coefficient 1 whatever you do to one side of the equation also do to the other to maintain the balance
Thank you so much!!! can you help me with another question?
what is the question?
you made a statement a = b now what?
It says to solve for x
