    Rearrange simple formula

    Hi

    I know this is a bit basic but how do I re-arrange this so that I have a formula that reads "v = ......"?

    .45v = v - c- s - a -vr - v((0.1 - (d+r)) - p

    It's a while since I've done any algebra. Thanks in advance

    move all terms with the factor v to the same side of the equation ...

    .45v = v - c- s - a -vr - v((0.1 - (d+r)) - p
    .45v - v + vr + v[0.1 - (d+r)] = -c - s - a - p

    factor out v from each term ...

    v(.45 - 1 + r + [0.1 - (d+r)]) = -(c+s+a+p)

    divide ...

    v = -\frac{c+s+a+p}{r + [0.1 - (d+r)] - .55}
