1
Divide each side by 2. Write original equation. Write 3x + 2y = 8 so that y is a function of x. EXAMPLE 2 Rewrite an equation Subtract 3x from each side. 3x + 2y = 8 2y2y = 8 – 3x 3 2 y=4 – x

2
Multiply each side by 2. Write original formula. SOLUTION Use the rewritten formula to find the height of the triangle shown, which has an area of 64.4 square meters. b. Solve the formula for the height h. a. EXAMPLE 3 Solve and use a geometric formula The area A of a triangle is given by the formula A = bh where b is the base and h is the height. 1 2 a. bh 1 2 A = 2A2A =

3
Substitute 64.4 for A and 14 for b. Write rewritten formula. Substitute 64.4 for A and 14 for b in the rewritten formula. b. Divide each side by b. EXAMPLE 3 Solve and use a geometric formula 2A2A b h= = 2(64.4) 14 = 9.2 Simplify. ANSWERThe height of the triangle is 9.2 meters. h 2A2A b =

4
GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 2 and 3 3. Write 5x + 4y = 20 so that y is a function of x. 5 4 y=5 – x ANSWER

5
GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 2 and 3 The perimeter P of a rectangle is given by the formula P = 2l + 2w where l is the length and w is the width. a. Solve the formula for the width w. 4. w = or w = – l P – 2l 2 ANSWER P 2
