1. ## please help need 911 on how to find the X in this problem

49x^2+16y^2+160y=384 having problem sloving for x

2. x can only be solved in terms of y.

Move all terms independant of x to the right hand side, divide by 49 and take the square root.

3. Is this what you are meaning 49x^2=16y^2+160y-384

I tried it the way I sent it and it was way way wrong... please help

4. These are the steps

$49x^2+16y^2+160y=384$

$49x^2=-16y^2-160y+384$

$x^2=\frac{-16y^2-160y+384}{49}$

$x=\sqrt{\frac{-16y^2-160y+384}{49}}$
