# Write the equation 2y − 4x = 5 in the form y = mx + b

We will use the concept of transposition in order to rearrange the equation 2y − 4x = 5

## Answer: y = (5 / 2) + 2x

Let us see how we will use the concept of transposition in order to rearrange the equation 2y − 4x = 5

**Explanation:**

For the given equation that is 2y − 4x = 5.

Let us transpose -4x on the right-hand side. On transposing we get

2y = 5 + 4x

Let us divide the complete equation by 2. On dividing we get

y = (5 / 2) + 2x
