Consider the system of the equation

            \begin{align*}
5x + y &= 31, \\
-3x + 4y &= -37.
\end{align*}

 

Solve the first equation for y in terms of x

 

Enter your answer in the form "$y = \dotsb.$"

The question does not ask for the value of y. It is asking for the first equation solved for  y .

 

5x + y  =  31

 

Subtract  5x  from both sides of the equation to get

 

y  =  31 - 5x

 

This is the first equation solved for  y
