# How Do You Solve For y In The Equation 2x + y = 6?

In the equation, 2x+y = 6 can be rearranged as

## Answer: Solving for y in the equation 2x + y = 6 we get y = 6 - 2x

let us change the subject of the equation to y and find the solution.

**Explanation:**

To change the subject of the equation let us have y in LHS and transpose all the other terms to the RHS side.

To do this,

We can subtract 2x in both LHS and RHS

2x +y - 2x = 6-2x

Since 2x-2x = 0

We have y = 6-2x
