Need to figure out variable Y & structure to define in PHP
Posted 02 March 2013 - 10:42 AM
I need some help to define a math equation, in PHP, that will determine the variable $y.
Example: (1.60 multiplied by 718) then divided by 3550 equals 0.328 (rounded up)
Equation: (1.60 * 718) / 3500 = 0.328
What i need to do is define a PHP formatted equation that will pass in the following:
$p = 1.60;
$c = 3500;
$e = 0.328
Which will then determine $y (which in the above example is 718)?
Note: should either of the other three variables change ($p, $c, $e), then $y value will dynamically adjust accordingly.
Any insight on how this can be defined in PHP appreciation - thx!
Note: I know the format - already stated - will work in PHP; I need to figure out how to render $y based on other known variables ($p, $c, $e)
That's my issue and my calucations - even knowing 718 is the answer based on those plugged in values - is unknown.

Thanks but that doesn't yield 718; intead 17073.
I know this should be simple to define but guess I've been out of school too dog-gone long... LOL!!!!
I'll continue to play w/it until i figure it out but thanks!

I figured it out - simple math (had to step thru to get to 2nd step).
Always, look for the simple method/answer...
