Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If j is the independent variable, you need to solve the equation for k.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is it just the 2 and 4 in the denominator, or are the j and k there too?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I can give you the 4 options for it. F(j)=2j+12 F(j)=1/2j+6 F(k)=2k+12 F(k)=1/2k+6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No, I meant what is the original equation? Which of these?\[\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }j+\frac{ 1 }{ 4 }k=3\]\[\frac{ 1 }{ 2j }+\frac{ 1 }{ 4k }=3\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0My mistake it's the first one that you have (I can't write my equations like that for some reason)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I got j=3/2 k=3 kinda lost on how to do this

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You're trying to get k by itself on one side of the equation. On the left side you have 2j added to k. So you need to subtract 2j from both sides to get k by itself

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ohh okay now I have k=2j+3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and to put it in function notation, just write k as k(j)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0actually you forgot to multiply the 4 and 3 on the right, so 2j+12

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And j is the independent variable so would that mean it's 2j or 2k

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it's 2j. k = f(j) = 2j +12
