**Reiny**, Sunday, September 16, 2012 at 9:28pm" b varies directly as the square root of w" --> b = k√w, where k is a constant

given: b = -24 , w = 36

-24 = k√36

k = -24/6 = -4

b = -4√w

1/8 = -4√w

√w = -1/32

by definition √w will be a positive number , so there is no solution.

Are you sure b wasn't -1/8 ?
