Hi, is anyone able to show me how to rearrange the terms here to get 1.10 + 1.10g = 2.06125 - 24.25g please?

They just multiply both sides by (0.085-g) and then expand out both sides.

Thank you - can please show me the expansion of both sides. I just can't seem to get my head around it.

$$\displaystyle 1.10(1+g) = 1.10 + 1.10g$$

$$\displaystyle 24.25(0.085-g) = ‭2.06125‬ - 24.25g$$

I still don't fully understand but thank you - also you don't need to roll your eyes at someone asking for help.
