  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?
