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.
