I How do I rearrange this equation and make x the subject

  1. May 7, 2017 #1
    equation is:

    k/((j+x)*^(1/2-a))+1=r/(x-1)

    Been spending countless hours on trying to figure a way to make x the subject in the equation and haven't got anywhere.

    Why do you think, it's possible? And what is your goal?

    Is it possible? I want to rearrange the equation so the x is by itself.

    What is "*^"? If it is exponentiation or a combination of complex conjugation and exponentiation, it is impossible (but it could be possible to get approximations in some cases). If it is multiplication, it is possible.
