If you really want an expert to help you, be sure to follow directions and type your subject in the School Subject box. Any other words, including obscure abbreviations, are likely to delay responses from a teacher who knows that subject well.

d8/d = d2/d+10
(d8)(d+10) = d(d2)
d^2 + 2d  80 = d^2  2d
4d = 80
d = 20
check:
12/20 = 18/30
