Two boys want to use a seesaw, and they need to move the seesaw so that their weights will balance out. The formula is given by w1 • d1 = w2 • d2 where w1 = weight of the first boy, d1 = distance of the first boy from the fulcrum, w2 = weight of the second boy, and d2 = distance of the second boy from the fulcrum. Rewrite the formula to solve for d2. Show all steps in your work.

w1 . d1 = w2 . d2 divide both sides by w2 and you have it.

Oh ok that's not that hard at all so u understand when one thing multiplies on one side it divides on other
anonymous
  • anonymous
So what they are saying make d2 the subject

Which means d2 must be left alone in one side so you w2 is multiplying by d2 just divide it in the other side

  • anonymous
w1 x d1 = w2 x d2 1 = 4 ?? im soz im confused by this
anonymous
  • anonymous
Where did u get 1=4
anonymous

Do you have any numbers to plug in?
anonymous
  • anonymous
No you won't get 1=4 you will get d2= ( w1 times d1)/ w2
anonymous
  • anonymous
There are no numbers in question which u need to plug in

  • welshfella
you are give no values yor answer will be a formula with d2 as the subject
imqwerty
  • imqwerty
\[w _{1}\times d _{1}=w _{2}\times d _{2}\]divide both sides by w2 u get-\[\frac{ (w _{1} \times d _{1}) }{ w _{2} }=d _{2}\]

exactly - that's what i said to do in my first post
anonymous
  • anonymous
so then its just w2 = d2 thats the final answer
