    Help on solving a simple? algebra formula

    It's been some time since I did this kind of work, and need some refreshment on the topic. Here is my formula (after I partly solved it):

    0.144a = X + 0.020304X

    I want X split out (X = ...), and don't remember how to do it when I have two parts with X in it.

    Thanks for any help on the subject.

    Kind regards, Atle

    You can group the like terms on the right hand side, I.e. X+0.020304X= 1.020304X

    Then divide both sides By 1.020304

    Ups, pretty stupid of me not remembering that part It's pretty obvious that X is the same as 1X. Anyway, thanks for helping me out. Maybe a good idea to refresh my math skills
