Algebra Comprehensive

Today is a A-day! (I think...)

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

Title: Solving Literal Equations/Evaluating Formula's

Warm-up:

Solve the following proportions:

1.

2.

A car travels 125 miles in 3 hours. How far would it travel in 5 hours?

Jane wants to make a doll that is a replica of a friend. The scale that she will use is 1 centimeter

on the doll will represent 2 inches on her friend. Her friend’s foot measures 8.5 inches. What will

be the size of the doll’s foot?

Literal Equation: when the coefficients and constants have been replaced by variables.

Ex.) ax + b = c

Example 1: Solve the equation above for x. Then use the solution to solve 2x + 5 = 11

You try!

1.) Solve the literal equation for x. Then use the solution to solve the equation.

a - bx = c 12 - 5x = -3

Example 3:

The area A of a triangle is given by the formula A = ½bh where b is the base and h is the height.

a.) Solve the formula for the height h.

b.) Substitute 64.4 for A and 14 for b in the rewritten formula. Solve for the height.

You try!

1.) Write 5x + 4y = 20 so that y is a function of x.

2.) The perimeter P of a rectangle is given by the formula

P = 2L + 2w where L is the length and w is the width.

a.) Solve the formula for the width w.

b.) Use the rewritten formula to find the width of the rectangle shown.

P = 19.2 ft.

w

7.2 ft.

Challenge:

A pet store sells aquariums that are rectangular prisms. The volume V of an aquarium is given by the formula V=lwh where l is the length, w is the width, and h is the height.

a. Solve the formula for h.

b. Use the rewritten formula to find the height of an aquarium shown, which has a volume of 5850 cubic inches.
