Hi everyone,

0.45 = (a - x(bcd + bce + bf)) / (a + x(bcg - bcd -bce -bf))
x = ?

I'm stuck and I need help! (I'm a 56 yo guy and school classes are very far...)

Thanks!

The appearance seems a bit pointless. Can you solve \(\displaystyle 0.45 = \dfrac{a - xH}{a+x(J-H)}\), for x?

Thanks, I solved it, x = 0.55a / (0.45bcg + 0.55b(cd + ce + f)), merry xmas

Ahh, I do not think it pointless at all. Finding the relatively simple in the seemingly complex is one of the skills that math teaches you.

Which obviously entails that it cannot be pointless.

Since you're solving for x, then the rest is assumed to be givens; so simplify:
u = bcd + bce + bf
v = (bcg - bcd -bce -bf

Equation becomes:
(a - xu) / (a + xv) = 9/20

Let us know if yer still alive Sir V !!
