This is known as a 'literal' solution (no definite answer), very useful in computer programs and Excel spreadsheets.

a=5b+c

a-c = 5b

b = 1/5(a-c)

Remember equations remain the same as long as you do the same operation to both sides

1st subtract from both sides

a - c = 5b

2nd divide by 5 on both sides

(a-c)/5 = b
