Help simplifying an equation - URGENT, PLEASE!

Hello folks,

I'm trying to simplify the following equation:

V = (a(1+a^n)-Q(1+a))/((a^n)*(1+a))

I really need to eliminate the divisor.

$$\frac{a(1+a^n)-Q(1+a)}{a^n(1+a)}$$

Can you say what this equation is from? Is it for schoolwork?

$$\frac{a(1+a^n)-Q(1+a)}{a^n(1+a)}$$

No, it's from a mathematical model of behavior. I'm an experimental psychologist.

I tried this. Not sure if it helps. The following link will allow you to try some more things.
Equation v=(a*(1+a^n)-q*(1+a))/((a^n)*(1+a)) solved for q
q = -((a^(n+1)+a^n)*v-a^(n+1)-a)/(a+1)

That's kind of spammy for a first post, but I'll leave it posted in case it helps with the question.
