    v=x-y/z


    I don't know if I'm working this problem out right. If I'm wrong, someone help me out.


    To get y by itself, multiply the other variables by z.


    v * z  =  x * z  -  y


    vz = xz - y


    Add y to both sides.


    y + vz  =  xz - y + y


                        cancels out


    y + vz  =  xz


    To get y by itself, subtract vz on both sides.


    y + vz - vz  =  xz - vz


        cancels out


    y = xz - vz


    Answer:  y = xz - vz
