Didn't you post this exact question very recently? You should add
another post to the original thread if you are not satisfied with
answers you got there rather than starting a new one.

In any case your problem is not really a Python problem. You could use
Python to solve it, but then you can probably get the answer you want
just by putting your equation into something like Wolfram Alpha
without any programming:
