Ok this was a physics problem...

I'm having a hard time with the algebra part

2. Relevant equations

solve for X

7.35E22/(3.84403E8 - X)^2 = 5.98E24/X^2

3. The attempt at a solution

i have got down to this and I think it is right but it might be wrong

0 = (7.35E22 X^2)/5.98E24 - X^2 + 2(3.84403E8)X - (3.84403E8)^2
