Algebra on CVP Analysis
Hi Guys,
Algebra has never been one of my academic strong points and whilst I understand the basics I'm having trouble understanding the workings of the following calculation. So yes I do have the answer but I just don't get how the final result was reached, any assistance would really be appreciated:
P = SXVFF (No need to drill down here, I understand the CVP formulae)
For this particular equation though the workings were revealed as follows:
10% of 2.5x = 2.5x  2x  800
x = 3200
Feedback would be appreciated.

(10% of 2.5x) = 2.5x  2x  800
0.25x = 2.5x  2x  800
0.25x = (2.5x  2x)  800
0.25x = 0.5x  800
0.25x  0.5x = 800
(0.25x  0.5x) = 800
0.25x = 800
x = (800)/(0.25) = 800*4 = 3200
Basic Operations. One at a time.

Thank you TK, the expanded workings make a great deal more sense.
Really appreciate it. (Rofl)
