Literal Equation

Concept

Literal Equation

A literal equation is an equation that is comprised mostly or entirely of variables, usually representing known quantities. The three literal equations above are the area of a circle, the Pythagorean Theorem and Einstein's mass-energy equivalence. Literal equations can be solved, using the Properties of Equality to isolate a variable.
