    Angry Simple Equation i can't do!

    * x refers to the letter, not the multiplication sign)

    With this equation:

    vx - 2v = x + 2

    How do you make "x" the subject of the formula?

    thanks

    solving linear equation

    vx - 2v = x + 2

     vx - x = 2v + 2

    x = \frac{2v + 2}{v - 1}

    solving equation

    Chuck wants to solve the equation in terms of x so we need x = something.
    and 'something' can not have x in it.
