    Hello All my daughter needs help in Evaluating Multiplication and Division Expression

    Can someone tell me if this would make z 50 and then multiply by 5.8 or divide? Or am I completely off? Thank you for your prompt response.
    This is the problem in question - 5.8z for z=50

    -5.8z implies multiplication of the value of z by -5.8

    Thank you Skeeter. Just to confirm, I would have 5.8 x 50?

    No it is not. Sorry, but that was just a hyphen.

    Thank you. Just wanted to be sure I was right. I haven't done this in over 30 years.
