How do you solve -\frac{4}{9} k = - \frac{1}{4}?

Jun 11, 2018

$k = \frac{9}{16}$

Explanation:

First, you want to get $k$ by itself, so you want to multiply by $- 9$ on both sides and you get

$4 k = \frac{9}{4}$

Then, divide both sides by $4$ and that multiplies which written out looks like

$k = \frac{\frac{9}{4}}{4}$

which when done gets you

$k = \frac{9}{16}$

I hope I helped!
