Solve for y:
2x - 5y = -1© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 4, 2021, 5:39 pm ad1c9bdddf
2x - 5y = -1
Adding 5y to both sides of the equation gives:
2x - 5y + 5y = 5y - 1
Now -5y + 5y on the left hand side of the equation is equal to zero therefore the equation becomes:
2x = 5y - ...
This shows how to solve for y in a linear equation.
