# How do you solve the equation for y in 7x - 3y = 4?

Apr 10, 2015

The answer is $y = \frac{7}{3} - \frac{4}{3}$

Solve $7 x - 3 y = 4$ for $y$.

Subtract $7 x$ from both sides.

$- 3 y = - 7 x + 4$

Divide both sides by $- 3$.

$\frac{\cancel{- 3} y}{\cancel{- 3}} = - \frac{7}{-} 3 + \frac{4}{-} 3$

$y = \frac{7}{3} - \frac{4}{3}$
