Hi Guys,

Hoping you can help with a simple manipulation problem??

I need to solve for P:

Q=120,000.(1-P/140)

If you could post steps to solving it would be great.

1. Divide both sides by 120,000.

2. Move Q/120,000 to the right side and P/140 to the left side.

3. Multiply both sides by 140. - Aug 18th 2011, 02:09 AMmb123Re: sloving for two variables including fractions
