1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Ok,

5x + 2(30) = y

turns into:

5/3x + 20 = y (that is 5 over 3 x)

Now it says something I dont understand.

"We now have two equations:

y = 5/3x + 20 and y = x + 30 (How did it get y = x + 30???)

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Thanks, appreciate it!
