Hi there,

I am trying to solve this equation using Mathematica but I keep getting the
following error "Solve::nsmet: This system cannot be solved with the methods
available to Solve".

Solve[(p*(1 - e^(-x*(d - p))))/((-d + p) (1 - e^(x*p))) == y, x]

I have also tried *Reduce* but that does not work either. Any suggestions,
how I can fix the error? I am new to apologies if this is a
very basic question.
