    Solve the following questions for the variable X

    Divide both sides of the equation by the variables that aren't "x" and by whatever constant you may have

    xy = wt

    x = (wt)/y

    ab = cx

    (ab)/c = x

    axc = by

    x = (by)/(ac)

    8xp = tyz

    x = (tyz)/(8p)

    3.7xy = 7.4fp

    x = (7.4fp)/(3.7y)
