y=x-5 rearrange the formulae to make x the subject
"To make x the subject" means to have an equation with all the terms in x on one side.Currently, y is the subject of the equation.

To make x the subject, you need to 'move' the -5 from the right hand side of the equation onto the left hand side.

We do this by adding 5 to both sides. This is because -5 + 5 = 0 and so we will simply be left with: y + 5 = x + 0 which is the same as y+5 = x. This is the right answer, but we usually prefer to write it as x = y+5.

Now try making x the subject of the following:

(1) y = x + 2

(2) y = 2 - x

(3) 2y + 3 = 2x -1

X/a(squared) 3b = 2c Make x the subject
x = (2a^2 * c) / 3b

sorry I can't quite explain what I did as I just did it in my head but it's about dividing anything on the left of the = to get X on it's own

X/3bA^2 = 2c... The question, just rearranged so it's simpler to think out.

Now we have to make X, the subject

If something is divided by another thing and you wish to make the whatever is on the top the subject, in this case X. You simply multiply the bottom to each side of the question.

X =(A^2) (3B) (2C)
=6A^2BC

Take your x’s to one side
xy-x=a

Factorise
x(y-1)=a

Bring y-1 to the other side through division
x=a/y-1
