Hi,

I have the following formula (see attachment).

How do I rearrange this to get the value of S2?

Thank you

1. Multiply the equation by \$\displaystyle S_2\$

2. Add \$\displaystyle S_2\$ on both sides of the equation

3. Collect the terms with \$\displaystyle S_2\$ at the RHS of the equation

4. Divide both sides of the equation by 1.0095

5. The final result should be \$\displaystyle \dfrac{1000}{673} \approx 1.48588\$

Thank you very much for that - I just had an absolute mind block attempting to do that simple calculation (don't ask me why).

If you were interested this equation is a later stage of a longer equation I am using for my international financial management module at university - I know, I should really be able to do this algebra, ha ha.
