First divide both sides by (1.012): (1 + F)^2 = 1.0457/1.012 Then take the square root of both sides: (1 + F) = sqrt(1.0457/1.012) Then subtract 1 to get F alone: F = sqrt(1.0457/1.012)  1 Just for your convenience, I evaluated it already, and the answer is: 0.016513844105 Thank you for your question. skermitga

0.016513844105 is only half the answer. When you take the square root of both sides, the +/ (plus or minus) sign needs to be added : (1 + F) = +/ sqrt(1.0457/1.012) therefore, F = 0.016513844105 or 2.016513844105 good luck with your studies!
