if this was a normal equation, and all those variables were numbers, how would you solve for s? hint: try to get s by itself

It's been so long since i actually did this type of problem
 2 years ago

etemplin Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
i also have a question about the original question is it C=(1/4)h(s+k) or C=1/(4h(s+k))

c=1/4h(s+k)
 2 years ago

etemplin Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
the first and easiest thing to get rid of is the 1/4 if we want to rewrite the equation, we could like this: c=(h(s+k))/4 since we are dividing by 4 on the right, we can multiply both sides by 4 to get closer to having s by itself (by moving the 4 over) we get: 4c=h(s+k) now, to get rid of that h notice its being multiplied by the quantity inside the parenthesis to move it to the other side, we need to divide both sides by h (4c)/h=s+k finally, subtract k from both sides to get your answer

ok so when i solved that i got 4c/hk

KE8717504 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
is that right ?
 2 years ago

etemplin Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
you should get 4c=h(s+k)
 2 years ago

KE8717504 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
That's what you got as the answer??
 2 years ago

etemplin Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
now, divide both sides by h
 2 years ago

KE8717504 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so the h on the one side would cancel and just leave me with s+k but i don't know what i would get on the other side

KE8717504 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so my answr is going to be 4c/h=s +k??
 2 years ago

etemplin Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
you have to get s by itself subtract k from both sides

etemplin Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
it says solve for s that means you have to get s by itself
 2 years ago

etemplin Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
think of it this way if you have s+k and you want to get s by itself, wouldnt it be necessary to subtract k s+kk=s
 2 years ago

etemplin Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
since you subtracted k from one side, you MUST subtract it from the other

ok im just confused on what im going to get i thought what i typed a minute ago was my answr
 2 years ago

etemplin Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
your answer is going to have s by itself on one side and a whole bunch of stuff on the other after you subtract k from both sides, the final answer is s=((4c)/h)k

for this one, you can follow the exact same steps as the first one. Multiply both sides by 2 to get rid of the 1/2 divide both sides by f subtract k from both sides what do you get?

ok start by simplifying sqrt((xy)^2)=xy yes?
 2 years ago

KE8717504 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
I guess i don't know lol
 2 years ago

etemplin Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
it is. trust me anyway, on the top, you can simplify sqrt(x^5y^9) to sqrt(x^4y^8)*sqrt(xy) sqrt(x^4y^8)=x^2*y^4 so 7x^2y^4*sqrt(xy)  3xy one x and 1 y on the top and bottom cancel answer: (7xy^3*sqrt(xy))/3

were the original numbers with the root or were they outside?

because i put it with the y and it said it was wrong.

they were on the outside of the root but they were part of the root

were the original numbers (the 3 and 7) with the root or in front of it?

that changes the answer then i assumed they were not part of the root; i assumed they were multiplied by it my mistake
