**The equation y is equal to the subject of x minus 2 times b squared divided by 2y is an algebraic expression that can be solved. This blog post will explore how to solve this equation, including what it means and why it’s important.**

**To make y the subject of x=a-2by^2, you need to solve for y. First, isolate the variable by subtracting 2bx from both sides of the equation. Second, use your calculator to take the square root on either side of the equals sign. Finally, invert it with a minus sign if necessary and divide both sides by b squared.**

**y=a-2by^2 is a standard equation that has no solution. It can be rewritten as y=-ax+bx and the solution to this form of the equation is (a,b)=(0,-1). The main idea behind this type of problem is that it can be expanded into two linear equations with two variables which makes it easier to solve.**

**y=a-2by^2 is a common equation that many students come across when trying to solve for y in algebra. Even though it can be difficult, there are techniques you can use to help yourself out! For example, if you have two points where x and y are both known (like (-3,4) and (5,-1)), then you could draw an imaginary line between them – this will give you the slope of your equation! Then all you need to do is plug in the slope along with either point into the formula: y=(y_1+y_2)/(1/slope) + b. After solving for b, we know that our final answer is: y=-7/9b^**

**I have a question about the formula y=a-2by^2. I am unsure if this means that I should be solving for y or x in order to find what would make it true. Can you help me understand?**

**The need for a blog post is always a difficult question. Do I want to write about how to make y the subject of x=a-2by^2? One way would be to take derivatives with respect to x and b, set those equal, then solve for y. Some people might say that’s too much work. They could just use substitutions or something else more easy going instead. What do you think is better? Thinking about it, I’ll go with one of my easier methods instead since I’m not feeling up for solving equations today.**
