    Post Transposition Question

    I have a exam in around a weeks time; for one of the questions I must transpose:

    10V1-10VN = VN-V2

    To Get:

    10V1+V2 = 11VP

    Please can someone run me through this transposition; I know it's not hard however I keep ending up with -11VP on the one side.

    Many thanks in advance for any help.

    How do you get "VP" at all? You started with "VN".

    How did you get "+V2" on the left? Doesn't the same procedure lead you to "+10VN" on the right?

    Why are we calling this a "Transposition", just to make it more difficult? If you just use "Addition", I think you'll be happier.

    Thanks for the reply, TKHunny.

    It was a transposition; but I (foolishly) hadn't put all my workings out up - otherwise I would have realised my typos!

    Have now managed to work it out (after correcting my own errors(!))

    But again, thanks for the swift reply.
