Re: Algebra

m/x + p/m = z; solve for x

m² + px = zmx   {multiplied entire equation by least common denominator, mx, to eliminate fractions}

m² = zmx - px   {subtracted px from each side}
m² = x(zm - p)   {factored x out of right side}

           
x = ————-
   {divided each side by (zm - p)}
       zm - p
