    Please help with a (probably pretty basic) equation

    Hi there, Iím a newbie here but would anyone be able to help me with this:

    I have two equations for animal production on a farm (expanded descriptively):

    a:
    total production per hectare = (sum of all income[i]) over (total number hectares[h])
    Values: $2092.24 = (Σ i [unknown value/s]) over (h [unknown value])

    b:
    total production per animal = (sum of all income[i]) over (total number animals[n])
    Values: $1081.03 = (Σ i [unknown value]) over (n [unknown value])

    How would I rearrange this so that I can determine the number of animals per hectare?

    Take care,
    G

    \frac{\text{number of animals}}{\text{number of hectares}}= \frac{\text{total value}}{\text{number of hectares}}\frac{\text{number of animals}}{\text{total value}}


    = \frac{\left(\frac{\text{total vaue}}{\text{number of hectares}}\rigth)}{\left(\frac{\text{\total value}}{\text{number of hectares}}\rigth)}
