Did you see the equation I wrote?
yes I did so it would be 14=k/8
\[y=\frac{k}{x}\]
Now solve that for k by multiplying both sides by 8
\[14(8)=\frac{k}{8}(8)\]
112=k/64?

Ohh, I see! Thanks for taking the time to explain that!
That's why you multiply both sides by 8...so that the 8"s on the right will cancel.
I see, Thanks so much!
