Find out is the value of h2

  1. Jan 14, 2004 #1
    I know that a lot of people are going to be thinking that I'm really thick but for some reason I can't re-arrange the equation below what I want to find out is the value of h2. If anyone could help I would be very grateful

    0.87 = -7.0599/191.83-h2

    Thanks again and I feel sooooooo stupid

    Is it
    [tex]0.87 = -\frac{7.0599}{191.83}-h2[/tex]

    [tex]0.87 = -\frac{7.0599}{191.83-h2}[/tex]

    heck it is an easy pro

    for 1) 0.87 = -0.0368-h2
    for 2) -7.0599/0.87 = 191.83-h2

    Since [tex]0.87 = -\frac{7.0599}{191.83-h2}[/tex],

    (0.87)(1.91.83- h2)= -7.0599.

    Can you do it from there?
