How do I solve the equation y=5/4x-7
First set the equation equal to zero
(add 7 to both sides)
(times each side by 4/5) (This will cross out 5/4 on the right side of the equation, leaving just x)
You have solved for x
Now you can solve for y
Simply take the original equation and plug in the x value
y= (5/4)(28/5) -7
y=(140/20)-7 (you can simplify 140/20)
This is how you would do this problem, If this is not what the question was asking. Please tell me and I will know what to do.
