ok need a small bit of help. Worked most of the problem but the last part is not working out. Here iswhat I need to do. Predict the height of a tree that produces 88 lbs of fruit. Equation is p-22=42/11(h-4) so someone helped me to change the equation to: h=(42/11)*(p-22)+4, p=88 but I keep coming up with 256 and a tree can't be that tall.

    In the original equation, is h - 4 a part of the denominator? I'm assuming it's not, cause a tree that produces more would surely be taller than a tree that produces less. Error in final equation. Should be h = (11/42)*(p-22)+4; h would be just over 21 feet when p = 88.
