Please help me - how do you solve an equation that has a variable on both sides of the problem?An example1/5 (10a - 15) = 3 - 2aThanks,Fri, 04 May 2018 03:55:10 GMThttps://community.ptc.com/t5/PTC-Mathcad/Solving-Equations-with-Variables-on-Both-Sides/m-p/415393#M162679Doodle-disabled2018-05-04T03:55:10ZSolving Equations with Variables on Both Sides
