Answer:

y=2x+5

Step-by-step explanation:

Let's solve for y.

−2x+y=5

Step 1: Add 2x to both sides.

−2x+y+2x=5+2x

y=2x+5

Answer:

y = 2x + 5

Step-by-step explanation:

-2x + y = 5 or y -2x = 5

We want what y equals so we need to isloate it. To do this, we need to add2x to both sides. This will cancel the 2x on the left side and now we have y alone. Remember, you have to do it to both sides. Therefore:

y = 2x + 5

Note: This equation is in slope-intercept form, y= mx + b

If this was the equation of a line:

  m (slope) = 2

  b (y-intercept) = 5

Hope this helps!
