## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi All,

I am having trouble solving an equation for X because the equation has summations of the X value to a power. Can anybody help me find the best way to solve this type of equation. I have included a simple example of what I mean below:

20

E {const/[(1+X)^t]} = const

t=4

Do you know if this can be simplified or if you can get the x on its own?

Thanks a million for any help with this..

Regards,

Gary
