Question about solve

>> clear all >> syms f n R1 R1 t >> solve('1/f = (n1)(1/R11/R2n/(n1)*t/R1/R2)','t') Warning: Explicit solution could not be found. > In solve at 81 ans = [ empty sym ]
I tried to solve the LensMaker's equation for t as above, but it didn't find the answer.
Do I use solve in the wrong way?
This equation should have explicit solution as in the following link. http://is.gd/3E62xg
