# Math Help - Solving equation for a variable which includes more than the same variable.

1. ## Solving equation for a variable which includes more than the same variable.

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

2. Why not just treat x as a constant
$2y^2 + by - 3x^2 = 0$
Now use the quadratic formula or complete the square.

Thanks for the prompt reply. I was able to find y.
