Solving Equations with Multiple Variables Exercises

Example 1

The volume V of a rectangular box is given by the formula V = lwh where l is length, w width, and h height. What is the height of a rectangular box with volume 56 cm3, length 4 cm, and width 2 cm?

Example 2

Solve the formula 8x + 4y = 12 for y.

Example 3

Solve the formula z3 - 3x + z2 = z for x.

Example 4

If 4x - y = 5, find x when y = 15.

Example 5

If y2 + 2y - 3x = 5, find x when y = 2.
