Solve for the indicated variable p
I don't know what you do to solve it.

A=P+Prt

  • Math -

    To 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)
