If \(2(x+y)=5\), then in terms of x, y =


A. \(\frac{5}{2} - x\)

B. \(\frac{5}{2} + x\)

C. \(5 - 2x\)

D. \(5 - \frac{x}{2}\)

E. \(\frac{5}{2} + \frac{x}{2}\)



2(x+y) = 5

x + y = 5/2

y = 5/2 - x

The best answer is A.

\(2x + 2y = 5\)

Or, \(2y = 5 - 2x\)

Or, \(y = \frac{5 - 2x}{2}\)

Hence, Answer must be (A) \(\frac{5}{2} - x\)
