Solve the following equation for w please: P = 2l + 2w
Solve the following equation for w please: P = 2L + 2W.
First, get the w term by its self. To accomplish this, simply subtract 2L from both the right and left hand sides. So, P - 2L = 2W. Finally, divide both sides by 2. $\displaystyle \frac{P-2L}{2} = W $. Flip this equation around to make it look a bit better: $\displaystyle W = \frac{P-2L}{2} $.
There ya have it... W all by its lonesome naked self.
Please learn to master these.
