Hi I need help with this question.

Rearrange this equation to isolate a

((a+(b/c))(d/e)=f

I know you first should divide both sides by (d/e)

Can anyone help, thanks

  • Math -

    That leaves a + b/c = (ef)/d. So you subtract b/c on both sides to isolate a.

  • Math -

    is it then a=(ef/d)-(b/c) ?

  • Math -

    Yes.
