Q:
# what is the value for p in x = -1/8y^2

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer: 0.2Step-by-step explanation:Simplifying3y + -1 = 8y + -2Reorder the terms:-1 + 3y = 8y + -2Reorder the terms:-1 + 3y = -2 + 8ySolving-1 + 3y = -2 + 8ySolving for variable 'y'.Move all terms containing y to the left, all other terms to the right.Add '-8y' to each side of the equation.-1 + 3y + -8y = -2 + 8y + -8yCombine like terms: 3y + -8y = -5y-1 + -5y = -2 + 8y + -8yCombine like terms: 8y + -8y = 0-1 + -5y = -2 + 0-1 + -5y = -2Add '1' to each side of the equation.-1 + 1 + -5y = -2 + 1Combine like terms: -1 + 1 = 00 + -5y = -2 + 1-5y = -2 + 1Combine like terms: -2 + 1 = -1-5y = -1Divide each side by '-5'.y = 0.2
