1. You can check your solutions by putting in the values of s

s=? -1
then -1+7/(-1)=-1-7=-8 checks

s=? 7
then 7+7/7=7+1=8 doesnt check. Did you mean minus 7, I think that checks. Check my thinking.

2. My guess was adding -7 to 1 to get -8

3. Well if you add the recipricol perpendicular to the value of s, you shall have your answer.

No offence but it is really quite easy. Do you want my help?
