# How do you solve y= ( 4+ x ) m?

Mar 19, 2018

$x = \frac{y}{m} - 4$

#### Explanation:

$y = \left(4 + x\right) m$

Here we have one equation with three unknowns. This cannot be "solved". We can only express one variable in terms of the other two.

Let's isolate $x$.

Divide through by $m$

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

$x = \frac{y}{m} - 4$
