So I've been trying for the last hour, to no avail.

p = 2+j/J-3

Rearrange the formula so j is the subject.

eg, do you mean:

$\displaystyle p = \frac{2+j}{j-3}$

or

$\displaystyle p = \frac{2+j}{j} -3$

or...etc - Oct 5th 2011, 12:41 PMStuuRe: Rearrange the formula
$\displaystyle p = \frac{2+j}{j-3}$

$\displaystyle p=\frac{2+j}{j-3}$

(multiply by [j-3])

$\displaystyle (j-3)p={2+j}$

expand the brackets on the left, collect terms, and finish.
