    just expand the expression then isolate that unit that you are supposed to find, just like you would isolate y or x or any other single variable. except here its just a little more complicated, but im sure you've got it sorted. its like rearranging the equation...
    have fun

    why are you keeping zero on one side? isolate your unit on that side, fiddle around till you get it. you already know what you have to find so you only have the easy part left. its probably half done for you already.
