    Re: Basic algebra question

    Thank you,

    That's a start, I must admit I left school over 25 years ago and have forgotten a lot of basic stuff. Even when I saw the error you highlighted I didn't realise there was anything wrong with it. Anyway, I've got that sorted now but still having issues getting the right number. Take a look an see if you can find the error in this lot.
