I don't know what you do to solve it.

A=P+Prt

**MathMate**, Tuesday, August 24, 2010 at 5:29pmTo solve for P in

A=P+Prt

you would arrange all terms containing P on the left, and everything else to the right, namely:

-P-Prt=A

Now factor using the distributive property:

-(1+rt)P=A

Divide both sides by the coefficient of P:

P=-A/(1+rt)
