For what value of x, y, and z, will the equation P^x v^y T^z = constant, become Boyles law?

If you want help you have to show your work.

You have to show that you made an effort at solving it.

I'll give you a clue:

You can make basic assumptions from this equation, for example, you know that when temperature is held constant that if pressure increases volume must decrease (which happens to be Boyle's law)

i assumed that from boyles law p= k/v using idice knowledge x=1, y=-1 and z=0 these happen to be the answer when i check. Thanks alot.
