Lesson Description:

Students learn to solve for given variables in advanced formulas. For example, to solve for "e" in the equation 2h = d(e + f), first distribute the "d" on the right side to get 2h = de + df. Next, isolate the "e" term by subtracting "df" from both sides to get 2h - df = de. Finally, divide both sides by d to get (2h - df)/d = e.
