Here goes the equation:

x/tan23 - x/tan32 = 10

Thanks in advance(Happy)

x=(10*tan32*tan23)/(tan23-tan32)

Cheers for you swift reply. Any chance you could do a brief explanation on how you reached your answer because I am a newbie at solving such equations?

P.S Did you make a mistake in the bracket(tan23-tan32) because I obtained a negative value for x? I thought it was supposed to be (tan32-tan23) or something? - Aug 10th 2010, 12:58 AMProve It

Thanks! That was a much more clearer explanation.
