# Math Help - Solving for an indicated variable?

1. ## Solving for an indicated variable?

Hi, im having trouble with this could someone explain to me step by step how i would do this type of problem, thanks

Solve the formula for z

6w+3z-7=w

2. First put all the terms except the z term on the right side of the equal sign by adding and subtracting those terms to the right side.

3z = w - 6w + 7

then simplifly the w - 6w

3z = -5w +7

then divide by 3 to solve for z

$z = \frac{-5w+7}{3}$

Does this make sense?

3. I saw what you did, i think i remember now...u made it seem less complex thanks!
