Question 633361divided by4 times y + 3=-5x : Assume this is what you mean and you wish to solve for y: {{{1/(4(y+3)) = -5x}}} : Mult eq by 4 and you have: {{{1/(y+3) = -20x}}} : Mult eq by (y+3): 1 = -20x(y + 3) 1 = -20xy - 60x : Add 20xy to both sides 20xy + 1 = -60x : Subtract 1 from both sides: 20xy = -60x - 1 : Divide both sides by 20x y = {{{(-60x -1)/20x}}} or y = {{{-((60x +1))/(20x)}}}
