For the first time in my life, I have a job that requires me to use algebra on occasion. I’ve come up with a tough, yet basic linear equation that I’d like to tell Excel to perform in steps. Maybe you can tell me how in this example:
What number multiplied by 18%, plus itself = 1180?
Or, (X*.18) + X = 1180
Solve for X. The answer is 1,000 but show your work. I need to know how to tell Excel to perform it.
