    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

    i also have a question about the original question is it C=(1/4)h(s+k) or C=1/(4h(s+k))

    the first and easiest thing to get rid of is the 1/4 if we want to re-write 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

    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+k-k=s

    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?

    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
