What are you solving for?
Solve for y:
Add 3 to both sides.
Divide both sides by 8.
Plug into equation.
Combine like items.
Divide both sides by 4.
Unfortunately, you made a mistake transitioning from these 2 steps.
Upon distributing the 8 to both terms in the parentheses, you forgot to preserve the linear term (the y). Therefore, the line should be:
If you continue solving from here, you will get \(0=0\), which means that all solutions are valid.
8x−3=5+4y subtract 5 from both sides
8x - 8 = 4y divide through by 4
2x - 2 = y
This is an equation of a line
