    First, to find x, you must add y to each side. That gives you 5 x=283+ yNow, divide both sides by 5, and you should now have x=283+ y / 5To solve for y, you go back to 5 x — y=283 subtract 5 x from both sides and you get — y=283 — 5 xTo get — y to equal y, you must multiply both sides by -1Now you have y=-283+5 xI hope this helped!
