    Hello,

    I went back into education after a while away and I need help with rearranging equations. Here is the example I'm trying to rearrange:
    R/r = sqrt(f+p)/(f-p)
    Attachment 694548
    I need to rearrange for f.

    So far this is what I've done:

    I have tried to move forward in various ways and none of them work. I actually managed to get rid of f somehow which is clearly not ideal. Any help would be appreciated but I really need some detailed advice. I can't continue to spend hours rearranging things and getting nowhere.

    Next multiply both sides by r^2. Expand the brackets, then collect f terms on one side of the equals sign.

    Let me know if u have any more questions or need further help

    I could be missing something here but you've literally done it? now all you have to do is subtract p from both sides and you have f on it's own = the rest of the equation ???????

    Assuming the OP need some to make f the subject, you can't have f on both sides of the equation.
