hi there,
i have been given an equation to rearrange
g = w/ft (making w the subject)

for some reason i cant seem to get it into my head how to answer this, if it was just g=w/f i would have been fine but i am totally thrown out by fxt.

if any one has any hints or tips i would greatly appreciate it, i'm not look for the solution just the know how so i can solve the question

Cheers

Welcome to PF.

I'm not sure I follow what you're asking.

What is g = w/ft ?

What specifically are you trying to accompllish?

all i am trying to do is to make W the subject of the equation. the letters are not significant i just need some help on the steps to rearrange this equation. E = W over F times T

Do you mean just the algebraic step to go from

E = W/(F*T)

to

W = E*F*T ?
