Formulas and Literal Equations

In this lesson you will learn about formulas and literal equations.  When first studying this topic it can be hard however, with practice and determination I know you can master this topic.  A literal equation is a type of an equation that has multiple variables.  What I will be teaching you is how to solve for a specific variable in a literal equation.  Formulas are the most common literal equations we experience. An example of a formula equation would be Area = Base x Height or A=BH.  If I asked you to rewrite this equation in terms of “B” I would be asking you to solve the literal equation (formula) for the variable B.  Remember to take notes and review all previous lessons on equations before you take on this lesson.
