  • Answer:

    [tex]\large\boxed{x=\dfrac{50y-585}{156}}[/tex]

    Step-by-step explanation:

    [tex]y=0.39(8x+30)\qquad\text{use the distributive propety}\\\\y=(0.39)(8x)+(0.39)(30)\\\\y=3.12x+11.7\qquad\text{multiply both sides by 100}\\\\100y=312x+1170\qquad\text{subtract 1170 from both sides}\\\\100y-1170=312x\qquad\text{divide both sides by 312}\\\\\dfrac{100y-1170}{312}=x\\\\x=\dfrac{100y:2-1170:2}{312:2}\\\\x=\dfrac{50y-585}{156}[/tex]
