Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is the equation \[\Large y = \frac{xv}{b}\] OR \[\Large y = x\frac{v}{b}\] ??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0your first step is to multiply both sides by 'b'

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x times y is just xy (sure we can't find the numeric value of that, but we can just say it's xy)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Im confused, so like you multiply b by x and b by v?

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh, 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no, you can add 'v' to both sides and this completely isolates x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\Large yb = xv\] \[\Large yb+v = xv+v\] \[\Large yb+v = x\] \[\Large x = yb+v\]
