Hello, I have a problem is there any function able to tell me what 'E' equals? 'z' and 'y' are constant. Please, if its possible use simple language :).

### RE: transforming the equation

There are numerous methods to solve this.

First Method - you doing the work
1. Divide each side by y
2. Take the natural log of each side
3. divide each side by -pi
4. multiple each side by (1-E)^1/2
5. Square each side
6. solve the quadratic equation for E

Second method - Use the Solve function of mathcad
