    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.
