    [SOLVED] Quadratic Equation

    I'm having trouble with this quadratic equation......

    x(squared)
    ------------- = 4
    (1-x) (4-x)

    What's the best way of tackling this?

    What I did:

    I expanded the brackets first, multiplying out (1-x) (4-x)
    getting...

    x squared - 3x + 4 = 4
    ---
    x(Squared)**

    I got stuck here and I don't think this way is correct.

    I should get x = 0.93

    **When I post the numbers aren't where I want them. It should read 4 over 2x after I expand the brackets.
