Re: Algebraic math Equation
Multiply both sides of the equation by 2m ... you will end up with a quadratic equation.

I tried that i ended up with 5m^2-4m-2 and i cant use quadratic formula for that

Re: Algebraic math Equation
You should end up with 5m^2-4m-2 = 0. Pick out a, b and c and use the quad formula.

Learn to use LaTeX coding.

[TEX]\frac{5m}{2}=2+\frac{1}{m} [/TEX] gives $\displaystyle \frac{5m}{2}=2+\frac{1}{m}$
If you click on the “go advanced tab” you should see $\displaystyle \boxed{\Sigma}$ on the tool-bar. That gives the [TEX]..[/TEX] wrap. Your LaTeX code goes between them.

This subforum will help you with the code. Once you begin, you quickly learn the code.
