    \[s=\frac{125}{1-0.7(y-1983)}\]Like that?

    Let me put it this way then. S=17 Y=1992 the equation is 17= 125/1+0.7(1992-1983), y.=1983 need to solve and not understanding.

    Ohh!! so solving this, \[17 = \frac{125}{1+0.7(9)}\] \[17 = \frac{125}{1+6.3}\] \[17 = \frac{125}{7.3}\]

    Not at this moment. This is part of a team project for school and no one else was able to work the equation either. I will get back to the project now and let everyone else know how it works now that I know. If I get stuck again I will log back in and ask for the help. Again thank you.
