Re: Find a solution

Hi tony123;

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
A number by itself is useful, but it is far more useful to know how accurate or certain that number is.

You can substitute this back in (2) and also make (say) x the subject, and hence get an equation in y.
