 Question 204779: write y in terms of x? (-x/3)+(y/2)=(5/8) I dont understand this? Are we solving for y or x?Answer by alicealc(281)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!it means that we have to make it y = .... x (-x/3) + y/2 = 5/8 y/2 = 5/8 + x/3 multiply each side by 2: y = 10/8 + 2x/3 y = 5/4 + 2x/3
