I'm working on a chemistry problem and I'm trying to follow the derivation for % ionization (of a weak acid or base) but I can't seem to understand how rearrangement of eq. 6 results in eq. 7.

In more general terms, I started with the Hendreson Hasselbalch equation:

pH = pka + log(A-/AH)

What I want to find is, A-/(AH + A-)

This is giving me a real headache, can anyone help?
