Greetings,

I have been banging my head against a wall trying to understand how-to make 'x' the subject of the following equation:

y = (w + x) / (x - 2)

I can't figure out how to make it appear as it does on the mock exam.

So far, I have the following steps:

y(x - 2) = w + x

xy - 2y = w + x

xy - x = w + 2y

And it's here where I get stuck. I just can't get my head around getting 'x' on its own.

Can someone please assist me?

Regards,

Mike.
