# Solving Literal Equations

## Exercise 1.7

### Solution

a To solve for we have to isolate the variable on one side of the equation, and we can use inverse operations to do this.
b To solve for we have to isolate the variable on one side of the equation. Since the terms on the right-hand side both have a factor  we can factor out  and then use inverse operations to solve for
c To solve equation for we can use inverse operations.
d To solve for we can isolate the variable on one side of the equation using inverse operations.

### Hint

a

Isolate the variable using inverse operations.

b

Isolate the variable using inverse operations.

c

Isolate the variable using inverse operations.

d

Isolate the variable using inverse operations.
