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
