Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we are given 1 / ( 97.2 * 10^(7) ) = 109860( 1  1/n^2) divide both sides by 109860 , or multiply both sides by 1/ 109860 which is the same thing 1 / ( 97.2 * 10^(7) ) * 1 / ( 109860) = 1  1/n^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.10.93647058 1 = 1/n^2 .0635294 = 1/n^2 multiply both sides by 1 0.0635294 = 1/n^2 multiply both sides by n^2 n^2 * 0.0635294 = 1 divide both sides by 0.0635294 n^2 = 1/ 0.0635294 take square root n = sqrt ( 1 / 0.0635294)
