* 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

$\displaystyle vx - 2v = x + 2$

$\displaystyle vx - x = 2v + 2$

$\displaystyle x = \frac{2v + 2}{v - 1}$ - Jun 14th 2005, 08:06 AMMatrix
why can't you do

VX-2V-2=X ? - Jun 14th 2005, 08:39 AMMath Helpsolving equation
Chuck wants to solve the equation in terms of x so we need x = something.

and 'something' can not have x in it.
