Homework Help: Rearranging equations

  1. Aug 9, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    d=vt+1/2 xt^2 This equation must be rearranged so that the answer is in x= form

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    d/vt=1/2 xt^2

    2 d/vt=xt^2

    this is as far as i got. Is it correct so far?

    vt needs to be subtracted from each side, not divided.
