    3Fv=\frac{mv^2}{r}

    3Frv=mv^2

    \frac{3Frv}{v^2} =m

    \frac{3Fr}{v} = m

    First multiply both sides by r to clear the denominator on the right side. That gives you mv^2=3Fvr

    Then, you can divide by v^2 to isolate m, giving you m=3Fvr/v^2

    You can then clean it up by getting rid of the v on top, since v/v^2=1/v

    Final answer is m=3Fr/v

    Clear?
