Last week while working on a new report, I needed a formula that would calculate a shortage/overage for a variable and had the equation worked out as follows:

a/(a+b) = c/d where I was solving for the variable a.

It's been 30 years since I had algebra, and I struggled with a half dozen attempts at getting 'a' by itself on the left side, but nothing checked out.

On a hunch, I did a quick google search and found this:

All you do is type in your formula, then it asks which variable you want to solve for. Brilliant!
