This is the process of how you would solve this.

-move the -3x over to the right hand side, so you have:
y = 5 + 3x

- since you know what x is, plug in the x which is 1:
y = 5 + 3(1)

- solve the equation
y = 5+3

y = 8, so the solution is 8.

Im trying to solve the equation 5x=10-3x

5x (-3x) = 2x -3x - -3x = 0
The equation then becomes 2x=10 2x/2 = x and 10/2 =5
then x=5. does it work 5x5=10+3*5 YES

5+6x=17+3x Need help asap

get the X's on the same side of the equation by subtracting 3x from both sides, then get the constants on the same side by subtracting 5 from each side. You'll simplify it to 6x-3x=17-5, resulting in 3x=12 or x=4...

  1. Transform this equation to its functional form:
  2. 9y=-3x+17 or y=(-1/3)x+17/9
  3. In the last equation, the slope is the coefficient of x, namely -1/3.
  4. A line parallel to this one must have the same slope (-1/3).
  5. So the equation of your line starts this way: y=(-1/3)x+b.
  6. To identify (calculate) b, you must make use of the fact that the parallel line passes through the point (1,5).
  7. That means that the coordinates of the point (1,5) satisfy the equation of the parallel line y=(-1/3)x+b
  8. Substitute 5 for y, and 1 for x and solve for b.
And that is as far I will go. I leave it to you finish up the work : find b and write the equation in the functional form, then convert it to the general form (Ax+By+C=0) if that is what you are asked to produce.

5x -2(x-2) = 6 -2(-3x-3)
5x -2x +4 = 6 +6x +6 (use the distributive property)
3x + 4 = 6x + 12 (collect terms)
4 = 3x + 12 (subtract 3x from both sides to get all x on one side)
-8 = 3x (subtract 12 from both sides to get only x on one side)
-8/3 = x (divide both sides by 3 to get x by itself)

5(-8/3) -2((-8/3)-2) = 6 - 2(-3(-8/3)-3)
-40/3 -2(-8/3-6/3) = 6 - 2(8-3)
-40/3 -2(-14/3) = 6 -2(5)
-40/3 + 28/3 = 6 - 10
-12/3 = -4 (yes)

2x2-3x+5=0 solving the quadratic equation

Here you are :
2X2-3x+5=0 => 4-3x+5=0; (2X2=4) => -3x+9=0; (4+5=9) => 9 = 3x; (-3x moved to the right-hand side and it became 3x) => 9/3=x; (3 moved to the right hand side, so it becomes 1/3, i.e 1/3X9= 9/3) i.e. x=9/3 => x=3
Hence x equals to 3.

You can add or remove the explanation/description, I simply add them to make you understand.
If you need help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Doing precal work, graphing a problem, (3x^2-3X)/(x^2 x-12). The TI 84 does not show what actually happens as the graph crosses the (6,3) point. The book says to graph it for -4 <= x <= 60 and 2.5...

You need to adjust the range of your graph. On the graph menu press range then enter the values of x and y. Set Xmin to -4 and Xmax to 60, and ymin to 2.5 and ymax to 3.5. IThis should adjust it properly, as you say.
