Rearranging Urgent Help!!Hi, #2 20130522 13:13:14
Re: Rearranging Urgent Help!!Hi; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20130522 13:19:28

Hello! #4 20130522 13:44:51
Re: Rearranging Urgent Help!!But those two methods are meant to work, or one of them should definitely work, but i always get to a penultimate stage and cannot get further... #5 20130522 18:31:23

Re: Rearranging Urgent Help!!
Yes! That is exactly what we have at this moment. #9 20130522 19:07:46
Re: Rearranging Urgent Help!!Hi; one more thing, that Pi is π? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #10 20130522 19:18:17
Re: Rearranging Urgent Help!!
I do apologise for not stating that. That Pi is not actually the greek symbol, it denotes the price level for individual goods (whereas P alone represents the overall price level). #11 20130522 19:41:14

Thank you, #13 20130522 19:58:39
Re: Rearranging Urgent Help!!Hi;
You mean multiply instead of divide, and you are correct up to there. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #14 20130522 20:14:32
Re: Rearranging Urgent Help!!
Yes, sorry again. I do mean multiply. #15 20130522 20:23:19
Re: Rearranging Urgent Help!!Hold on you are going to fast. After the multiplication of the two terms you should have: In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Rearranging Urgent Help!!
Yes, I have this! #17 20130522 20:28:54
Re: Rearranging Urgent Help!!Remember that has a zero on the right so it is really: In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Rearranging Urgent Help!!
Yes! So we can multiply across to rid the P, but then we need to divide again by P to get the required expressions? So there is no need multiplying across? #19 20130522 20:35:15
Re: Rearranging Urgent Help!!No, do not multiply by the P. Instead split the fraction up like this: In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #20 20130522 20:41:32
Re: Rearranging Urgent Help!!
Ok thank you, I have now done that. The only next step I can see is to write (nw/P) + (Pi(1n)/P)=0. #21 20130522 20:46:11

Re: Rearranging Urgent Help!!Yes, that is where I am at. At the latter stage, I really have no idea what to do. I tried working backwards from the eventual solution but I can still not see a link. #24 20130522 20:56:47
Re: Rearranging Urgent Help!!
Oh my I think we are close. #25 20130522 21:02:39
Re: Rearranging Urgent Help!!Hi; Divide both sides by (1n) Now you use the identity: We are done! In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
