If x is a whole number, y is an integer, and z is the opposite of the negative of c, find the answer to this equation if c=5. x/2y-(z)=?

z is the opposite of the negative of c isn't that just a convoluted way to saying z=c

you have x is a whole a number y is an integer, which means a whole number z = opposite of -c, opposite of -c would be positive c

yes opposite of a negative gives the original result

so you have z=c, so z = 5 \[x/(2y) - z = 0\] I guess here

ok so i guess this is what you have and this is the answer since this is all we know \[\frac{x}{2y}-5\]
