http://www.regentsprep.org/regents/math/algebra/AE4/litless.htm This site offers a step by step guide for solving literal equations. 1. Write down all of example 1, including the work. Next to this problem, write the step of work each time in your own words. You should have written at least 2 steps down. 2. Look at example 2. What was done to both sides of the equation to eliminate the fraction 1/2 on the right side? If you can't figure it out, watch this 3 minute video, otherwise you can move on to the next section.
http://www.purplemath.com/modules/solvelit.htm This site offers examples of how to solve equations for a given variable with work shown. Examine the 3. Explain the step to solve d = rt for t . Show the work and write down what you did to each side next to your work. 4. Explain the steps needed to solve P = 2L + 2w for L. Show the work and write down what you did to each side next to your work. (For extra help on this problem, watch this video Khan academy 3) 5. Looking at the 5th bullet (black dot), copy the work and write an explanation for each of the steps that are shown to solve for t.
