# Math Help - solve for y help

1. x = k - [(pq)^(1/2)]/y

transpose x to the right and transpose [(pq)^(1/2)]/y to the left

when you transpose, please change your sign to the opposite sign, that is (+ to -) and (- to +).

[(pq)^(1/2)]/y = (k - x)

cross-multiply, obviously y and (k - x) will change places

[(pq)^(1/2)]/(k - x) = y

or

y = [(pq)^(1/2)]/(k - x)

a latex print will be better to see, i'm too LAZY to learn latex

2. That's much better!

$x= K+ \frac{\sqrt{pq}}{y}$
Subtract K from both sides: $x- K= \frac{\sqrt{pq}}{y}$

Multiply both sides by y: $(x- K)y= \sqrt{pq}$

Divide both sides by x- K: $y= \frac{\sqrt{pq}}{x- K}$
