Input:nsolve(y+57+x+16+4x-5,x)

Intepretation:Solve $$(y+57+x+16+4x-5=0)$$ for $$x$$

$$y+57+x+16+4x-5=0$$

Merge the corresponding terms:

$$y+5x+68=0$$

Move $$y$$ and $$68$$ to the left:

$$5x=-y-68$$

Divide the entire function by a factor of 5:

$$x=-\frac{1}{5}y-\frac{68}{5}$$

$$=\frac{1}{5}\left(-y-68\right)$$

Q.E.D.
