Unformatted text preview: Section 2-6 Literal Equations Objectives Solve literal equations for a given variable Manipulate formulas We'll come back to section 2.5 later Literal Equations An equation with more than one variable. When we solve them, we don't get a number Formulas Example: Solve the equation for x y - 4 = 3x - 8 Solve the Equation for p m - np = d Solve for w P = 2(l + w) You try - Solve for y 2 x + 7 y = 14 Solve each equation for the indicated variable A = bh ; h 9r - t = 7 ; t A useful example! The formula degrees Fahrenheit to degrees Celsius. Transform the formula to find degrees Fahrenheit in terms of degrees Celsius. 5 C = ( F - 32) converts 9 9 F = C + 32 5 Find the Fahrenheit temperature in Winnipeg today.
