I need to transpose a formula and my algebra isn't up to it.  I would welcome any suggestions or solutions.  the formula is:

S =  (A * (A + 1) * (A + 2))
       ---------------------------
                    6

I need to rearrange this and make "A" the subject of the formula.  I believe there is a method using sucessive approximations but I would prefer not to take this approacg. If anybody fancies a little bit of brain-bashing, please feel free.

Many thanks

Richard Clark
