Math help for determining lateral Gs

Math was never my favorite subject and it's been about 15 years since I sat in a physics or math class so I need help.

The equation for computing the maximum mph around an arc is 15GR=mph^2 where G is maximum lateral g-force a car is capable of and R is the radius of the arc.

How is the equation arranged to determine G where you know the radius and the maximum mph you can achieve around an arc as in ???=G?
