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

your first step is to multiply both sides by 'b'

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_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
you just multiply both sides by 'b' to get \[\Large y = \frac{xv}{b}\] \[\Large yb = xv\] 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?

no, you can add 'v' to both sides and this completely isolates x

\[\Large yb = xv\] \[\Large yb+v = xv+v\] \[\Large yb+v = x\] \[\Large x = yb+v\]

and now you're done
