please help me figure out how to do thes problems
THIS IS IMPROTANT Y/2, X/3 AND H/5 ARE FRACTIONS. it doesnt mean divide its fractions that's why i need help plse tell me how you did it so i can figure out the rest of my problmes
Well, actually fractions and divide are pretty similar.
now for example
(y/2) + 5 = -12
add -5 to both sides
(y/2) +0 = -17
multiply both sides by 2
y = -34
thx you so much i was so confused
4. y/2 + 5 = -12 (use the inverse operation to get rid of the 5)
y/2+5(-5)= -12 (-5)
y/2=-17 (isolate the variable, aka, multiply both sides by 2, to get your answer of...)
