# Math Help - Algebra Roadblock, quick assistance needed!

1. ## 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.

2. $.00030 - x= 0.182x$

add x to both sides

$.0003 = 1.182x$

Divide both sides by 1.182

$x= 0.0002538071$
