Introduction to Using Formulas to Solve Word Problems

In this section, we will be exploring applications of linear equations with a special focus on solving formulas to find a missing variable. In particular, you will learn how to:
  • Use the distance, rate, and time formula
  • Apply the steps for solving word problems to interest rate problems
  • Evaluate a formula using substitution
  • Solve temperature conversion problems
  • Apply the steps for solving word problems to geometry problems
  • Solve area, volume, and perimeter problems
  • Solve a formula for a specific variable
