## SOLUTION…

To make q the subject of this formula, we have to resolve the equation so that q will be on one side (left or right), and other letters on the other side.

You can do this by directly taking the element with q to the right-hand side, and taking 1 to the left-hand side as follows:

### Now for the right answer to the above question:

1. Option A is correct.
2. Option B is incorrect.
3. C is incorrect.
4. D is not the correct answer.

## QUICK TIPS…

• Knowledge of how to find LCM is necessary to bring the fractions together, and basic mathematical manipulations as shown above is very necessary to easily solve the problem.
• Remember to change signs when crossing items.
• A = B is the same thing as B = A, so whichever side the q appears does not matter, the goal is to put q on one side, and others on another side.
