I don't understand how I can isolate this equation so I can solve just for y. I already know how to set it up so I can solve it for x and b. Can someone help me solve for y?

Equation: ((3x^2) / y) = 2y + b

Why not just treat x as a constant

$\displaystyle 2y^2 + by - 3x^2 = 0$

Now use the quadratic formula or complete the square. - Aug 3rd 2010, 08:08 PMcurio03
