Hello,
I want to solve for x:
y = (3x+2)/(2x-5)
I tried to cross multiply but still could not separate the x from the y term?
Thank you.
When you cross multiply, you should get the expression $\displaystyle (2x-5)y=3x+2$
This implies that $\displaystyle 2xy-5y=3x+2\implies 2xy-3x=2+5y$
Now we can pull out a common factor of x on the left side.
$\displaystyle (2y-3)x=5y+2$
I'm sure you can take it from here.
