Please show steps.

add 5 to both sides
divide x by both sides
y=(k+5)/(x)Source(s): calc 2

xy - 5 = k
Add 5 to both sides: xy -5 (+5) = k + 5
Now you have: xy = k + 5
Divide both sides by x: xy/x = (k+5)/x
This gives you:
y = (k + 5) over xSource(s): My vague recollection of high school math. Which means I could totally be wrong, btw. Edit: Nvm, it is indeed correct.
