I am a coder and I can't figure out how to get a certain result.

My equation is: 1/(.85/1234+0.15/5678)
The answer is: 1398.1426347926729

I am trying to get the answer to equal 1500 by only changing "5678". I need help understanding how I would do this.

Let's call that number 'x'. Then:

1/1500 = 0.85/1234 + 0.15/x

Now solve for 'x'.

Hello Techno. We call that an 'expression'.

It's not an equation because there's no equals sign. Cheers
