Course 3 10-5 Solving for a Variable Learn to solve an equation for a variable.

Solving for a Variable 10-5
Course 3 10-5 Solving for a Variable If an equation contains more than one variable, you can sometimes isolate one of the variables by using inverse operations. You can add and subtract any variable quantity on both sides of an equation.

Solving for a Variable 10-5
Course 3 10-5 Solving for a Variable Additional Example 1A: Solving for a Variable by Addition or Subtraction Solve for the indicated variable. A. Solve a – b + 1 = c for a. a – b + 1 = c Add b and subtract 1 from both sides. + b – b – 1 a = c + b – 1 Isolate a.
