You have an unmatched parenthesis in your equation. Let's see if I can guess where it goes. Is this it?
That is correct. Sorry for any confusion. Thanks

First subtract 3.05 from both sides and expand the power. Then distribute the numerator in the last fraction. Next, multiply the two fractions together. Cross multiply Combine terms Finally, divide by the coefficient of a Is this what you expected?
Yes, thank you so much. I really appreciate your assistance.
