    Algebra Roadblock, quick assistance needed!

    While working some chemistry homework in prep for tomorrows test, I came across some simple algebra that I can't for the life of me remember how to solve.

    If someone can quickly just do a workout step by step on how to solve this it will jog my memory so I can solve it in the future.

    (.00030 - x)= 0.182x

    So simple looking yet I can't even work it out, its crazy how fast I lose my algebra ability if I don't keep up with it.

    .00030 - x= 0.182x

    add x to both sides

    .0003 = 1.182x

    Divide both sides by 1.182

    x= 0.0002538071
