I have to hand in an assignment at the end of the year and I cannot for the life of me get this equation to work. The equation is: [attachment=0:39r9dbzx]Retire 2.JPG[/attachment:39r9dbzx] And I need to get the m alone on one side. I would be forever grateful if one if one of you financial/Mathematical geniuses would be so kind as to help me. (P.s I cannot use the Goal seek function in Excel as this is unacceptable for the assignment)
