A=p+prt, for t

how about subtracting p from both sides, then dividing both sides by pr

I think it could be A divided by p, then the quotient of that minus the product of r and t.

if you divide by p first you get

A/p = 1 + rt

then A/p - 1 = rt
now you still have to divide by r
(A/p - 1)/r = t looks pretty messy

the way I had suggested:
A-p = prt
(A-p)/(pr) = t

Sorry, I don't have a clue what I was talking about, I'm just waiting around for my questions to be answered and looking at the other posts. don't mind me:')

    how do I do this Solve for x. 3x – 2y = 6 Add 2y to both sides and then divide both sides by 3, to give you just "x' on the left side. so is this how i work it out 3x-2y=6 3x- 2y= 6 -2y 3x=6-2y x= 2 +2y No. Add 2y to both sides.

    If 4X + Y =H, Then X is equal to? 4X + Y =H Move Y to other side by subtracting Y from both sides. 4X + Y - Y = H - Y Combine terms. 4X = H - Y Now divide both sides by 4 to get 1X. 4X/4 = (H - Y)/4 X = (H-Y)4 or (1/4)(H-Y)
