3x + 4y = 72. Solve for y in terms of x

Dec 18th, 2014

In order to solve for y in terms of x, we want to put the y term on the left side of the equal sign, and all other terms on the right side.

3x + 4y = 72
**SUBTRACT 3x FROM BOTH SIDES
4y = 72 - 3x
**DIVIDE BOTH SIDES BY 4
y =72/4 -3x/4
**SIMPLIFY
y = 18 -3x/4
