Question 1 of 5
Two Variables

When solving an equation with two variables, replace the variables with the values given and then solve the now variable-free equation. (Remember order of operations, PEMDAS, Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication/Division, Addition/Subtraction.)

Solve -5b - b = 9b + 2y - 8 for b in terms of y.

-\(\frac{3}{8}\)y + \(\frac{1}{4}\)
\(\frac{1}{8}\)y + \(\frac{1}{8}\)
-3\(\frac{1}{3}\)y - \(\frac{2}{3}\)
-\(\frac{3}{14}\)y + \(\frac{4}{7}\)
