# How do you solve x/5=y+4 for y?

May 12, 2016

color(blue)(y = (x - 20 ) / 5

#### Explanation:

$\frac{x}{5} = y + 4$

$\frac{x}{5} = \textcolor{b l u e}{y} + 4$

$\frac{x}{5} - 4 = \textcolor{b l u e}{y}$

$\textcolor{b l u e}{y} = \frac{x}{5} - 4$

$\textcolor{b l u e}{y} = \frac{x}{5} - \frac{20}{5}$

color(blue)(y = (x - 20 ) / 5
