    numerical solution

    hello, am a biologystudent & i urgently need help in this equation:
    I have it attached because i couldnt type it :s

    I want to make P the subject of the equation. I tried but i couldnt.
    I hope it would be easier for you
    thank u

    It can't be done algebraically without using the Lambert W-function. If you ultimately want to get a numerical value of p for given values of F and alpha, I'd suggest using a numerical to get the answer to a desired accuracy.

    thanks a lot, i really do have numericals for alpha, F & n but still couldnot find p.
    F= 0.66
    n = 16.8ln2
    alpha = 1.32
    Maybe now someone can give me a value for p?

    You might want to substitute the following solution and check it works since I'm well known for being careless:

    p = 0.01255327 (correct to 8 decimal places)
