Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if this was a normal equation, and all those variables were numbers, how would you solve for s? hint: try to get s by itself

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it's the first one that you put on there

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so when i solved that i got 4c/hk

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you should get 4c=h(s+k)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That's what you got as the answer??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now, divide both sides by h

KE8717504

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so my answr is going to be 4c/h=s +k??

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I thought that I just subracted something

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it says solve for s that means you have to get s by itself

etemplin

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0think 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

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok im just confused on what im going to get i thought what i typed a minute ago was my answr

etemplin

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0your 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I thought that is what i put a minute ago

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it was not. you hadnt subtracted k yet

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its ok. r u working it or something

etemplin

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok start by simplifying sqrt((xy)^2)=xy yes?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I guess i don't know lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is that 3 suppose to be with the root?

etemplin

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0were the original numbers with the root or were they outside?

KE8717504

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because i put it with the y and it said it was wrong.

KE8717504

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0they were on the outside of the root but they were part of the root

etemplin

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0were the original numbers (the 3 and 7) with the root or in front of it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that changes the answer then i assumed they were not part of the root; i assumed they were multiplied by it my mistake

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yea. when i solved it the first time i did it like the 2nd choice the new answer isdw:1351650440270:dw

KE8717504

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so my y is on the outside??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you cant simplify the bottom at all, and the top can be just a little bit

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0im just saying the answer is the one i drew the reason is given in the post after that

etemplin

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is the 3 part of the root like the 7 is?
