This is driving me nuts! How do I solve for y here? x= (y-2)/(5y) Solve for y. I can't figure out even the first step on how I would go about doing this. Thanks!

or $\displaystyle \displaystyle x = \frac{y-2}{5y} $ $\displaystyle \displaystyle x= \frac{y}{5y}-\frac{2}{5y} $ $\displaystyle \displaystyle x= \frac{1}{5}-\frac{2}{5y}$ $\displaystyle \displaystyle x- \frac{1}{5}= \frac{2}{5y}$ finish it ...
Thanks so much! Makes sense now.
