# Math Help - Possible to get x and y posivtive

1. ## Possible to get x and y posivtive

is it possible to get x and y both positive AND on different sides of this equation? $10y=-15x+55$

I'm trying to answer a question in a book and in the answer they gave was $2y=3x+5$ but i can't seem change my answer into that.

No it's not possible. Are you sure you copied the original equation correctly?

oh god that is so annoying. I spent all morning trying to work this out and i just noticed i mistakenly put in a minus in one of the steps.

Thanks anyway.
