# How would you rearrange this equation? watch

1. m/v - t/b = (m-t)/R
I need to make m the subject of this equation, I've tried everything and can't work it out :s
Sorry can't write fractions on here, hope that, makes sense
2. m/v -t/b = (m-t)/R
m/v - t/b = m/R -t/R
m/v-m/R = t/b -t/R
m(1/v - 1/R) = t/b -t/R
m= (t/b-t/R)/(1/v-1/R)

So basically, get all terms involving the thing you're trying to find on one side of the equation, and everything else on the other, and then factorise with the thing you're trying to find, and then move the factorisation term to the other side and you're done. Probably easier described by the above rather than in words though haha

hope that helps
3. thank you so much, I was confused for sooo long
