## anonymous one year ago find inverse of y=-8x+16 i don't need answer please just explain how to solve

1. Nnesha

replace x with a y and y with a x variable

2. anonymous

@Nnesha

3. Nnesha

how did you get ?? how did you get 6 at the numerator ?

4. anonymous

I meant 16 not 6 sorry i got y= x-16/-8

5. Nnesha

alright simplify

6. anonymous

y=x+2

7. Nnesha

uh-oh

8. Nnesha

$\frac{ x-16}{ -8 } ~~means~~ \frac{ x }{ -8 } -\frac{ 16 }{ -8 }$ both terms are dividing by -8

9. anonymous

ok so it would be x/-8 - 2

10. Nnesha

yes you can write it as $-\frac{ 1 }{ 8 }x ~~or~~ x\frac{ x }{ 8 }$

11. Nnesha

wait no -16/-8 = ?

12. Nnesha

$$\color{blue}{\text{Originally Posted by}}$$ @Nnesha yes you can write it as $-\frac{ 1 }{ 8 }x ~~or~~ x\frac{ x }{ 8 }$ $$\color{blue}{\text{End of Quote}}$$ sorry typo $-\frac{ 1 }{ 8 }x ~~or~~ -\frac{ x }{ 8 }$

13. anonymous

is it so its -1/8x+2

14. Nnesha

yes right +2

15. anonymous

thank you
