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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[w _{1}\times d _{1}=w _{2}\times d _{2}\]divide both sides by w2 u get\[\frac{ (w _{1} \times d _{1}) }{ w _{2} }=d _{2}\]
