to solve just plug the values and find unknowns
Still Need HELP! Can any one solve this for "a" for the folowing values
a+((aex)/d) = ((cex)/d) + ((fex)/d) + b
a=?
b=14.3
c= -18.8
d=50.6
e=18
f=4.6
X=1
Thanks
Plug in numbers into their variables.
a+((a(18)(1)))/(50.6)=(((-18.8)(18)(1))/(50.6))+(14.3)
Solve by inner-most parenthesis first and then outward.
a+((18a)/(50.6))=((-338.4)/(50.6))+(14.3)
a+(180/506)a=(-3384/506)+14.3
add 'like'-fractions together
(506/506)a+(180/506)a=-(3384/506)+(7235.8/506)
(686/506)a=(3851.8/506)
a=(38518/5060)/(686/506)
Sorry numbers are huge but I don't have a calculator by me so that was the easiest way I could do it without wasting too much time. But if you plug in the last part in a calculator exactly it should give you the answer.
