I need to re-arrange the following equation to make $d$ the subject [i.e., solve for $d$]:

$$a = \sqrt{\frac{d}{be}}.$$

The square root part is really confusing me, any help would be much appreciated.

@Dennis: What you mean, when you say : Make $d$ the subject –  anonymous Nov 18 '10 at 21:34
    
So as the equation is re-arranged to be d = –  Dennis Henry Nov 18 '10 at 21:35

Ok. Squaring both sides you obtain $$a^{2} = \frac{d}{be} \Longrightarrow d = (be) \times a^{2}$$

Thanks, is it possible to re-arrange it without the brackets though? –  Dennis Henry Nov 18 '10 at 21:41
    
@Dennis: Yes, i used brackets only for the sake of convenience –  anonymous Nov 18 '10 at 21:42
    
Thanks, so what has happened to the 'a' part? –  Dennis Henry Nov 18 '10 at 21:44
    
@Dennis: According to your notation $a=M^{2}b^{2}e^{2}$ –  anonymous Nov 18 '10 at 21:48
    
Sorry, I'm not sure if I'm managed to explain it correctly, please can you see the below image of the equation? –  Dennis Henry Nov 18 '10 at 21:53
