Work Step by Step
Because we are solving for y, we start off by getting rid of x by adding 2x to both sides of the equation to set y equal to x. -2x+5y=12 +2x +2x 5y=2x+12 The next step is to divide by 5 to get y by itself. When you divide one variable by a number, you must divide all of them by that number. After completing this step, our equation is now converted to slope-intercept form.
