It's P=(24x)/(x+3)
If p=20,000$
20,000=(24x)/(x+3)
Cross multiplication ....

$20,000=24x/x+3

Please you have to know how to type correct , go to forum help and then to Karle's notes -Typing math .
As we know if thier is only multiplication or division you can devide them .
What you have to do is :
(20 ,000)(x+3)=24x
