    Rearrange formula

    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 S_2

    2. Add S_2 on both sides of the equation

    3. Collect the terms with S_2 at the RHS of the equation

    4. Divide both sides of the equation by 1.0095

    5. The final result should be \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.
