Given: \(r = \frac{3s +1}{1-2s}\)

Multiply both sides by (1 - 2s) to get: r(1 - 2s) = 3s + 1
Expand: r - 2rs = 3s + 1
NOTE: We want the s's on one side. So....
Add 2rs to both sides: r = 3s + 2rs + 1
Subtract 1 from both sides: r - 1 = 3s + 2rs
Factor right side: r - 1 = s(3 + 2r)
Divide both sides by (3 + 2r) to get: (r - 1)/(3 + 2r) = s
