    Question Rearranging variable only equation

    I need to solve the following two equations for C. Any help/answers would be great. I'm quite rusty on my algebra at my age

    0(zero)= (A*B*C) - [(D-E)*F*C*H)]

    X= (A*B*C) - [(D-E)*F*C*H)]

    Thank you!

    Thank you!
    For the first one you can factor C from both terms. With 0 on the LHS that means we may assign any value to C.
    0 = \[ AB - (D - E)FH \] \cdot C

    For the second one obviously C is still a factor of both terms, but now you can divide by the ugly term that's left on the RHS.

    Topspuark answered it wrong, It is infact O-Fk-D-H-FE .E

    For the second one its obviously E

    Re: Rearranging variable only equation

    0 = a - (D-E)b
    x = a - (D-E)b

    lnconsistent. Can't be solved.

    Sorry, I misread the question. It's too late to edit it out. My apologies.

    PS I have no idea where Jordy got that equation from.
