Part 1 of solving for one variable in a formula.

• What is a literal equation in Algebra?
• How do you solve for one variable in a formula?
• How can you solve for t in d = rt?
• If you know the rate and distance, how can you find the time?
• How do you solve I = Prt for I?
• How do you solve for w in the Geometry formula 2w + 2h + l = p?
• How do you get r all by itself in the formula sr + tr = u?
• How can you solve for a variable in a formula if it shows up twice?
• How can you solve for m in the formula mn = p - mr?
This lesson, although it may seem a bit basic, is quite challenging to many beginning Algebra students. You will learn in this lesson how to get one variable all by itself when given a formula. A couple of example formulas are shown and variables are solved for.
