Hello! I posted a question earlier asking about a Pre-Calculus problem, but I'm afraid there was a small typo. I forgot to add what the equation was equal to. Thanks to CPHill for your answer to my previous question, however. This is the correct one.
If anyone can help me, it would be GREATLY appreciated! Thank you!
I think you wanted to solve for x
Divide both sides by 2
(m /2) = nx + bn + bx subtract bn from both sides
(m / 2) - bn = nx + bx simplify the left side as a single fraction
[ m - 2bn ] / 2 = nx + bx factor the right
[ m - 2bn ] / 2 = x [ n + b] divide both sides by [ n + b ]
[ m - 2bn] / [ 2 ( n + b) ] = x
