What is the best strategy to use to make solving the linear equation x+2/3y=−5 easier? Explain. Question 15 options: a) Fix x. Solve for y. Use multiples of 3 like 0, 3, 6, 9 , 12 for x to get rid of fractions. b) Fix x. Solve for y. Use the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 for x because small numbers make calculations easier. c) Fix y. Solve for x. Use the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 for y because small numbers make calculations easier. d) Fix y. Solve for x. Use multiples of 3 like 0, 3, 6, 9, 12 for y to get rid of fractions.

There is no "best strategy". It is a ridiculous question.

You cannot SOLVE a linear equation. You can solve a linear equation FOR something. You cannot SOLVE it. It is a silly question.
