(10/3)z = (y-6)^2
y = sqrt[(10/3)z] +6
= 1.826 sqrt z + 6

I'm sorry. Really don't understand this. Where did the 10/3 come from in the first step?

  • math - ,

    .3 is 3/10
    if you move that across the equal sign, you get
    z=3/10 sqrt( )
    10/3 z= sqrt ( )
    then square both sides
    (10/3 z)^2=y-6
    y= (10/3 z)^2+6
