    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).
