# Solving Literal Equations

## Solving Literal Equations 1.11 - Solution

a
Solving the formula for $m$ with inverse operations.
$d=\dfrac{m}{V}$
$dV=m$
$m=dV$
b
The density $d$ is $5.23$ $\text{g}/\text{cm}^3$ and the volume is $V= 1.1$ $\text{cm}^3$. In order to find the mass, $m,$ we substitute these values into our rewritten equation.
$m=dV$
$m={\color{#0000FF}{5.23}} \cdot {\color{#009600}{1.1}}$
$m=5.753$
$m\approx5.75$
Therefore, the mass is approximately $5.75$ g.
