# How do you solve for y given 3x-5y+4=0?

Mar 30, 2017

Get y on the left and everything else on the right of the equals sign.

#### Explanation:

$3 x - 5 y + 4 - 3 x = 0 - 3 x$
$- 5 y + 4 = - 3 x$
$- 5 y + 4 - 4 = - 3 x - 4$
$- 5 y = - 3 x - 4$ (multiply by -1 throughout)
$5 y = 3 x + 4$
$5 \frac{y}{5} = \frac{3 x + 4}{5}$
$y = \frac{3 x + 4}{5}$
