simple algebra question

Hello everyone. I have been trying to solve a simple algebra problem and am stuck. I was wondering if anyone might explain how I find the solution?

(variable x .13) + variable = 170

I used to be a whiz at math in high school, but can't remember how to do this.

Given y × p + y = c, where p isn't -1, write the equation as y(p + 1) = c.
It then follows that y = c/(p + 1).
