Isolate x. The command ISOL appears in the second row of the AL-

The expression returned represents a symbolic solution of the equa-
tion for x-that is, the equation
2(a
+
x)
=
3(b -
x)
+
c
is satisfied when x
=
(3b
+
c -
2a)j5.
Using FORM
If there are multiple occurrences of
x, and if any occurrence has a
symbolic coefficient, the command COLCT won't combine the coef-
ficients. The next example isolates
x
in the equation
a(x
+
b)
+
2x
=
c,
where
x
occurs more than once and has a symbolic coefficient
a.
The
strategy is to expand the equation, use FORM to collect coefficients of
x, and then isolate x.
Put the equation on the stack.
