    n = b + d^2a for a

    Let's start by isolating the one term with the a variable.

    Subtract b from each side:
    n - b = b - b + d^2a

    Cancel the b terms on the right side and we get:
    n - b = d^2a

    With the a term isolated, let's divide each side of the equation by d^2:
    (n - b)/d^2 = d^2a/d^2

    Cancel the d^2 on the right side, and we'll display this with the variable to solve on the left side:
    a = (n - b)/d^2
