help with transposing
i have this formula- 13.5.Fm+Fm=12500 and need to find what Fm is.
Is this possible.

In my text book it says that Fm = 860, but it does not work in original equation.

Is it possible to get Fm???

Any help greatly appreciated...

14.5 Fm = 12500 => Fm = 12500/14.5 = 2500/29 which is approximately equal to 862.

13.5.Fm+Fm is equal to 14.5 Fm (you have 13.5 of them and then you add 1 more).
