(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

How would you solve for x in y = (x+4)/(x+3)

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

y(x+3) = (x+4)

xy+3y=x+4

-x+xy+3y=4

x-xy-3y=-4

...... That is the closest to anything familiar I could come.

This isn't really a homework question but how would you do this? Is it even possible?
