1 2.6 FormulasA literal equation – an equation involving two or more variables.Formulas are special types of literal equations.To transform a literal equation, you solve for one variable in terms of the others.You get the variable you are solving for alone on one side of the equation.
2 Transforming Geometric Formulas Solve the formula for the area of a triangle for height h.
3 Transforming Equations Solve y = 5x + 7 for x.y = 5x + 7y – 7 = 5x
4 Transforming Equations Containing Only Variables Solve ab – d = c for b.ab – d = c+ d +dab = c + d
5 More Practice!!!!Textbook – p. 113 – 114 #2 – 24 even, 30 – 40 even.
