## anonymous 5 years ago what is the solution to the equation? -2+ 1/2z=8

1. anonymous

$-2+\frac{1}{2z}=8$ $\frac{-4z+1}{2z}=8$ $-4z+1=16z$ $-4z-16z=-1$ $-20z=-1$ $z=\frac{1}{20}$

I can't type in fractions. So what does Z=?

3. anonymous

z=1/20 $z=\frac{1}{20}$

4. anonymous

no dear on my work I can't use any thing but #'s I go to a online school

5. anonymous

so u want the value of z right !

6. anonymous

z = 0.05

7. anonymous

Yup

8. anonymous

z = 1/20 1 ÷ 20 = 0.05 z = 0.05

9. anonymous

It said you were incorrect.

1/20 = 0.05
