uhhh, fractions actually ARE equations (in the simplest form). I gave you the equation (in fractional form) AND the result (in the text of the post).Uhhh, equations usually have something called an equal sign somewhere. It kind of makes it hard to perform algebra without one. I think I've seen enough here. SMH

Quoting....

"CD * A * (V3)

----------------

150,000

where:

CD = drag Coefficient (.7)

A = frontal area in sq. ft. (10)

V = Velocity (speed) in MPH (116.25)

This calculation gives the HP loss due to aerodynamic drag - which in this case equals 73.3 HP."

If you omit the text in RED (which was there to help clarify for the "math-challenged") you see the the full equation - including EQUALS. But of course, I should not have spelled it out, as this is what totally confused you.

Which means you have absolutely no chance of understanding much on this subject anyway.
