    sloving for two variables including fractions

    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.

    Thanks for your help!

    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.
