Well I thought to solve for theta meant to get theta by itself on one side of the equation and have everything else on the other.

So do it.

Didn't I do that with this

θ = ([H+] / Ka) + 1

⇒ θ = ([H+]+[Ka]) / [Ka]

θ = ([H+] / Ka) + 1

⇒ θ = ([H+]+[Ka]) / [Ka]

Sanity check: if θ=1+x/y and both x and y are positive, θ is larger than 1. By definition θ is lower than 1, so your answer must be wrong.

is "Ka / [H+] = (1-θ) / θ" where I need to start, or is that where I initially messed up.
