    Ok, from now on I shall use brackets! That statement you made did make me chuckle though.

    You've lost me..

    Please please use brackets.

    (3w+20)/20 = A/(A+12)

    Make.a.common denominator? Or multiply throughout by 20(a+12)

    What do you get?
    You should have: (after multiplying through)

    (3w+20)(A+12) = 20A

    Expand. What do you get?
