1-72.

Rearrange each equation below by solving for *x*. Write each equation in the form *x* = ____. (Note that *y* will be in your answer). Homework Help ✎

To solve for

*x*, you need to isolate the*x*-term. There are two ways to start. You can isolate the*x*-term or eliminate the denominator.To isolate the

*x*-term:To eliminate the denominator first:

3

*x*+ 2*y*= 6See part (a).

*y*=*x*^{2}Refer to part (c) of problem 1-37.

*y*=*x*^{2}− 100Refer to part (d) of problem 1-37.

This cannot be simplified. Why?
