Here it is: If the expression: - 8w-5 over 6w+5 is to make sense, the values that w can take must be restricted. State the restriction on w. I'm not too sure how to type it but it looks something like this: 8w-5 - ---- 6w+5 Thank you so much for any help!!Answer by stanbon(60771)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The denominator, 6w+5, must not be zero; when is that? 6w+5=0 when w=-5/6 So, w can be any Real Number except w= -5/6 ------------- Cheers, Stan H.
