## maz5tl 3 years ago 9/2h=-1?

1. lgbasallote

True.

2. godorovg

what are you trying to do?

3. maz5tl

looking for the variable and how to solve

4. Yahoo!

9 = -2h h = -9/2 = -4.5

5. godorovg

hey yahoo care to explain that answer?

6. maz5tl

how do you get -2h?

7. godorovg

okay forget the answer yahoo gave

8. godorovg

first are solving for h here?

9. maz5tl

i need help. step by step

10. maz5tl

and yes we are solving for the variable

11. zzr0ck3r

(9/2)h = -1 multiply both sides by (2/9) (2/9)(9/2)h = -1(2/9) h = -1(2/9) h = -2/9

12. godorovg

yep that is right..

13. maz5tl

would 9/2h x 2h/1 = -1 x 2h work too?

14. godorovg

no because the reason is you are solving for the H, so therefore in what you doing can not work.

15. maz5tl

|dw:1345525014529:dw|

16. maz5tl

so its a no?

17. godorovg

when solving for H we must have H alone. so in this case 9/2h=-1? the only to get h is by dividing by 9/2 so then you h=1-/92 that is how you do this problem

18. zzr0ck3r

maz this is not a yes or no question. the answer is h = -2/9
