Best Answer

y = 12x + 5x - 7

Since '12x' and '5x' both have the same variable, you are able to combine them. To do this you just need to add 12 + 5 to get 17.

After doing this you can rewrite the equation as y = 17x - 7.

You can then solve this equation for different values by plugging in a number for 'x' or 'y' or graphing the equation.
