    Simplification

    Hello I have a finance problem that i am trying to solve but i havent done algebra in a while and i seem to be failing pretty hard

    So Heres the entire equation

    0 = 19000 + 4000 - (1000x )(((2100)(37)+4000+19000)/(2100+1000x)

    Simplified it to -23000 = (1000x)(200737/1000x) but i cant seem to collect my like terms. if you could simplify the right side explaining how you do it it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    You made a mistake in there somewhere...

    \displaystyle 0 =  19000 + 4000 - (1000x )\frac{(2100)(37)+4000+19000}{2100+1000x}

    \displaystyle 0 = 23000 - (1000x) \frac{100700}{2100 + 1000x}

    \displaystyle 23000 = (1000x) \frac{100700}{2100 + 1000x}

    Can you go from there?
