    Algebra

    I have this equation

    [1-c_1(1-t_1)+m_1]Y = c_0 -c_1 t_0 + I + G + X - m_0

    which rearranged gives this equation.


    Y = \frac{1}{1-c_1 (1-t_1)+m_1}[c_0 -c_1 t_0 + I + G + X - m_0]


    I cant work out where they got  \frac{1}{1-c_1 (1-t_1)+m_1}

    i keep getting this


    Y = \frac{c_0 -c_1 t_0 + I + G + X - m_0}{1-c_1(1-t_1)+m_1}
    Could someone please enlighten me.

    it's the same thing ...

    ab = c

    to isolate b , multiply both sides by the multiplicative inverse of a ...

    \frac{1}{a} \cdot ab = \frac{1}{a} \cdot c

    b = \frac{1}{a} \cdot c = \frac{c}{a}
