## momr1958 4 years ago I really need help understanding how to solve this Mathematics problem. s=125/1-0.7(y-1983) S=17 and y = 1992 Can someone Please Help Me.

1. LagrangeSon678

2. momr1958

That and solving the equation.

3. saifoo.khan

$s=\frac{125}{1-0.7(y-1983)}$Like that?

4. momr1958

yes

5. saifoo.khan

are you sure your question is complete? or can u give the complete answer>

6. momr1958

the equation is like you show with this added y>=1983

7. momr1958

S will =17 and y is 1992

8. saifoo.khan

i still dont get it sorry. can u rephrase?

9. momr1958

Let me put it this way then. S=17 Y=1992 the equation is 17= 125/1+0.7(1992-1983), y.=1983 need to solve and not understanding.

10. saifoo.khan

Ohh!! so solving this, $17 = \frac{125}{1+0.7(9)}$ $17 = \frac{125}{1+6.3}$ $17 = \frac{125}{7.3}$

11. saifoo.khan

17 = 17.123

Thank you. I was performing the figures in the equation in the wrong way. This will help me understand what I need to do better. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

13. saifoo.khan

No problem!! =) i can help u with other math stuff as well. if u are stuck anywhere!!

14. momr1958

Not at this moment. This is part of a team project for school and no one else was able to work the equation either. I will get back to the project now and let everyone else know how it works now that I know. If I get stuck again I will log back in and ask for the help. Again thank you.
