Solve each equation below for the indicated variable, if possible. Show all steps. Homework Help ✎
Solve by isolating the variable on one side of the equation by subtracting 22 from both sides.
2x = 12 − 22
2x = −10
x = −5
Solve by isolating y on one side of the equation, and then simplify as much as possible.
2x = y + 3
Subtract 3 from both sides.
2x − 3 = y
Use the same strategy shown in parts (a) and (b) to solve parts (c) and (d).
y = 5 − 3x
