Ok, since that help was so good, I am going to ask one more question. This problem reads as follows:

solve for c: x= p(1/a + m/c)

My question is; do I use the distributive property?
Once again, I appreciate the help.

Thanks, Ron

Yes or No. It's up to you. Which looks better after the first move:

Distributive Property of Multiplication over Addition

x = p/a + p*m/c

Division

x/p = 1/a + m/c

You choose.
