Hi everyone, Not sure if I posted this in the right section, but let's say I have the following formula: Code: (a * 10d) / (g * r)  (u  0.5d) * (g * 0.002d)

It is not an equation since where is no "=" in it. So, one cannot solve it nor "reverse" it until it will be written as an equation must be written.

OK; so you have: v = (a * 10d) / (g * r)  (u  0.5d) * (g * 0.002d) same as: v = 10ad / gr  (u  d/2)(dg / 500) do the multiplication: v = 10ad / gr  dgu / 500 + d^2 g / 1000 Only one term contains the "u"; so easy to wrap up...do you want the "satisfaction" of finishing it?

is it : value =((a * 10d) / (g * r))  ((u  0.5d) * (g * 0.002d)) or value = (a * 10d) / ((g * r)  (u  0.5d) * (g * 0.002d)) ? Supposing that the equation is : value =((a * 10d) / (g * r))  ((u  0.5d) * (g * 0.002d)) (u  0.5d) * (g * 0.002d) = ((a * 10d) / (g * r))  value (u  0.5d) = ? u = ?
