    Re: Solve for X

    ex - fx = g + hx - k

    ex - fx - hx = g - k

    x(\cdots)=g-k

    Have a go from here - finish the factoring in line #3 and see if you can finish.

    Re: Solve for X

    x ( e - f - h ) = g - k

    divide both sides by ( e - f - h )

    x = ( g - k ) / ( e - f - h )

    Thanks, I think I understand now.
