1. ## Solving for z

g=h(x+y/z-x) solve for z

The solution I keep getting is...

z= hx+hy-gx/-g

should this be the correct answer?

2. ## Re: Solving for z

If you mean :

$g=h\cdot\left(\frac{x+y}{z-x}\right)$

then solution should be :

$z=x+\frac{h(x+y)}{g}$

The book show something totally different

1. What does the book show?

2. What have you tried?

5. ## Re: Solving for z

How do you all show the formating of your formulas? Makes it easier for me to show my work to you.

6. ## Re: Solving for z

It's called LaTeX. There is a LaTeX subforum on this site where you can get some help on the coding.

7. ## Re: Solving for z

Ok here's what I did....

g=h(x+y/x-z) for z

multiply both sides by (x-z)

g(x-z) = h(x+y)

gx-gz-gx = hx+hy-gx (clear parentheses and subtract "gx" from both sides)

-gz = hx+hy-gx

z = hx+hy-gx/-g

Let me know if this makes sense.

With the necessary modification, what you have is fine.
