Hi,
I would appreciate your help answering the following question.
If Y = 3x+2/5-x, express x in terms of y.
Thank you.
Please clarify: do yuo mean $\displaystyle Y = 3x + \frac 2 5 -x $ (which is what you wrote), or do you mean $\displaystyle Y= \frac {3x+2}{5-x}$ ? Or perhaps $\displaystyle Y=\frac {3x + 2} 5 - x$?
Or perhaps since you posted your question in the LaTeX help section you're looking for asistance in writing the equation as I did, using LaTeX?
The platform you use is irrelevant. LaTeX is a function of the webpage.
[TEX] \frac{3x+2}{5-x} [/TEX] gives $\displaystyle \frac{3x+2}{5-x} $.
This subforum will help you with the code. Once you begin, you quickly learn the code. If you click on the “go advanced tab” you should see $\displaystyle \boxed{\Sigma} $ on the tool-bar. That gives the [TEX]..[/TEX] wrap. Your LaTeX code goes between them.
Here are more examples:
[TEX](5+2\sqrt{6})^{x^2-3}+(5-2\sqrt{6})^{x^2-3} [/TEX] gives $\displaystyle (5+2\sqrt{6})^{x^2-3}+(5-2\sqrt{6})^{x^2-3} $
