In this lecture Dr.Fraser will show you how to approach a problem when there is More Than One Variable present in an equation. You will cover real life examples of multivariable equations before diving into the strategy and typical applications of such equations. Lastly, Dr. Fraser will cover four in depth examples illustrating the lecture concepts.
involve more than one variable, say x and y. Sometimes you are
asked to solve such an equation for a specified variable, such as y.
To solve such
equations, isolate the variable you are solving for using the
Sometimes, in more
complicated equations, you need to use the distributive property to
isolate the variable.
application of this type of problem is to solve a given geometric or
scientific formula involving two or more variables for a specified
More Than One Variable
