    The solution is: b = (a-c)/5

    a = 5b + c

    a - c = 5b

    .......a - c

    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
