Hi, maths is a long time ago for me and I need to solve this equation (if its possible). I've read where to post but its been so long I'm still not sure so if this isnt the right area then I apologise.
I have a formula where,
x = a - b + (((a+b)/2) * e) * f
is it possible to rearrange this formula so I could isolate b i.e. b = ?
Any help would be greatly appreciated
Thank you Adrian, very much appreciated.
I've tried to complete it from here but I'm getting stuck. It's for a work assignment which i hope can be solved this way but I just wish I continued with Maths at school. I'm getting stuck removing the division to isolate the b? am I on completely the wrong track?
by all means but please be kind this is my first attempt at trying to remember how to do this. I've just ordered some books from Amazon.
Following your last line
x - a - efa/2 = -b + efb/2
x- a - efa/2 = -b + b(ef/2)
from there I feel I want to square both sides to get rid of the divide but then I just get lost?
