For x

Is the equation \[\Large y = \frac{x-v}{b}\] OR \[\Large y = x-\frac{v}{b}\] ??

the first one
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
your first step is to multiply both sides by 'b'

  • jim_thompson5910
what do you get when you do this?

But i thought you cant multiply a different variable with another
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
you can, there's no rule that says you can't
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
x times y is just xy (sure we can't find the numeric value of that, but we can just say it's xy)

Im confused, so like you multiply b by x and b by v?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
you just multiply both sides by 'b' to get \[\Large y = \frac{x-v}{b}\] \[\Large yb = x-v\] what's next?

oh, um i really don't know, my teacher didn't really explain this to us. Don't you just leave the problem like that since you cant do anything else?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
no, you can add 'v' to both sides and this completely isolates x
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
\[\Large yb = x-v\] \[\Large yb+v = x-v+v\] \[\Large yb+v = x\] \[\Large x = yb+v\]
