Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y = 5x +8 Subtract 5x from both sides 5x + y = 8 Subtract y from both sides 5x = y +8 Divide both sides by 5 That should give you your answer. :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So you are isolating x, correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You just divide the rest of the equation by 5, and x is then isolated. x = 1/5y  8/5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You have to keep your variables in the equation, so you would have... x = 0.2y  1.6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Unless you are given another equation or a set of coordinates, you can't do much more to the equation given, so x = 1/5y  8/5 or x = 0.2y  1.6 would be your final answer.
