Try factoring an x from each term on the left and see where that takes you.

Hi jmbky1,

Sure. Here we go.

$\displaystyle 2xz+wx=\frac{w}{y}$

Factor an x term from the left side.

$\displaystyle x(2z+w)=\frac{w}{y}$

Now, divide both sides by (2z+w).

$\displaystyle x=\frac{\frac{w}{y}}{2z+w}$

You may want to refine the right side a bit.

Your answer looks good.
