Determine whether the equation defines y as a linear function of x. If so, write it in the form y = mx + b. 8x = 5y + 9

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Yes. the equation 8x=5y+9 defines y as a linear function of x

to rewrite it in the form y=mx+b,

8x=5y+9

8x-9=5y

divide all sides by 5 gives

8/5x-9/5=5/5y

therefore:

y=8/5x-9/5
