Solve the equation for the value of n; P and c are known

P/n = 2^(1/((c)*(P/n)))

the right hand side expression is:

2 raise to (1 divided by (c multiplied by (P divided by n)))

thanks in advance

Actually i am trying to develop an algorithm for a given problem, wherein i am supposed to separate a string in two parts based on a mathematical logic. I derived this formula to separate the string. P is the length of full string and n is the length of string required to be extracted. But this equation is ver confusing. Any help will be appreciated.

thanks,
Sid
