# How do you solve for y in  ry+s=tx-m?

Feb 14, 2016

To solve means to isolate.

#### Explanation:

$r y + s = t x - m$

$r y = t x - m - s$

$y = \frac{t x - m - s}{r}$

Practice exercises:

1. Solve for x.

a) $\frac{1}{x} + \frac{1}{y} = \frac{2 + 3 x}{z}$

b) $2 x y + 3 z = \frac{1}{x - y - z}$

Good luck!
