x[y_] = x /. Solve[y == x/a + b, x][[1]]

-a (b-y)


-a (b-2)

Hello, I have a very simple question but I didn't find an answer in mathematica help.
I use Solve[expression(x,y),x]. Then, x is obtained as a one-to-one function of y. I want to define the function x(y) using the output of Solve. How should I do?
Thank you very much for your help. Best regards, Laurent
