I'm reading my physics text book and the example has an equation of...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

mg-m(g/(1+M/2m)) = T

manipulated so that it equals...

T = mg/(1+2m/M)

I'm not sure how to get this I tried to distribute the m to get...

mg - mg/(1+M/2m)

and multiplying mg by ((1+M/2m)/(1+M/2m)) but could not get the result the book got.
