Solve for d in terms of a, b, and c
Hi everyone,

this math problem is probably really easy to solve, but since I'm not a native
English speaker I'm not completely sure what to do. It would be wonderful if
someone could help me out.

The problem:

Solve for d (in terms of a, b, and c) in the following equation:

1 + a = b/(c X d2)

$c\cdot d^2=\frac{b}{1+a}$

$d^2=\frac{b}{c+ca}$

$d=\pm\sqrt{\frac{b}{c+ca}}$
