We need to find N in terms of P, R , S

$$P = \frac{S}{1+nr}$$ divide both sides by 1+nr

$$\frac{P}{(1+NR)}= S$$

$$S= P+PNR$$

$$S-P = PNR$$ divide by PR

$$\frac{S-P}{PR}= N$$

$$N = \frac{S-P}{PR}$$

IMO: A

P * (1+nr) = S
1 + nr = S/P

nr = S/P - 1

nr = S-P/P

n = S-P/Pr

Answer choice A

Try n = 1, r = 2 and s = 6

P = 6/(1+2) =6/3 = 2

If we rearrange the first formula it would be 6 - 2 = 4/(2*2) = 4/4 = 1

$$P = \frac{S}{1+nr}$$
or, $$\frac{P}{S} = \frac{1}{1+nr}$$
or, $$\frac{S}{P} = 1+nr$$
or, $$\frac{S}{P} -1= nr$$
or, $$\frac{S-P}{Pr} =n$$.... Ans A.

$$P = \frac{S}{1+nr}$$
=> $$\frac{S}{P} = 1+nr$$
=> $$\frac{S}{P} -1= nr$$
=> $$\frac{S-P}{Pr} =n$$

A is the correct Answer

(E) $$\frac{Pr}{S} - 1$$

Simplifying, we have:

P(1 + nr) = S

P + Pnr = S

Pnr = S - P

n = (S - P)/Pr

Answer: A

Substitute the values carefully

P =S / (1+nr)

S = 4 n = 3 r =1, P = 1

We need to find an expression which will give n=3

A does that
