Homework Help: Math, simple equation

  1. Mar 25, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    a=(4b-14)/(b-5)

    b= ...

    2. The attempt at a solution
    Attempted a lot of things, but couldn't isolate the b. Is it possible at all to do this, when there are multiple terms in the numerator. If so, how?

    Never mind, problem solved.

    b= 5a-14 / a-4
