Topic: Solve for w in the equation V=lwh?**Question:**
Im doing a review math packet and i forgot how to do this problem, so a step by step guide w. explanations would be very appreciated. Thanks.

w= V/lh to solve it, you have to isolate for w...so you have to get rid of the l and h on the right side, but dividing both sides by "lh" (l times h).. so on the left side u have V divide by lh...and on the right side the l and h will cancel. so you can write it as: V=lwh V=w(lh) V/lh = w

Did you like the answer? 2x + 3(11/3) = 12 3/1 * 11/3 = 33/3 When multiplying, just multiply across, numerator to numerator and denominator to denominator. (I know I put a 1 under the 3, all whole numbers have a 1 under them) (example : 3/1 = 3) or ( lets say 5 in fraction form is 5/1 ) (Another fraction example 2/5 * 3/4 mult across and you get 2 * 3 = 6 and 5 * 4 = 20 answer 6/20 then, simplify and get 3/10) Now simplify 33/3 = 11 2x + 11 = 12 Now subtract 11 from both sides. and you get 2x = 1 2x = 1 Now divide 2 on both sides and you get x = 1/2 ordered pair is (1/2 , 11/3)

This question is a lot easier then you are probably trying to make it. This is simply moving letters to opposite sides of the equation. First you start with v=lwh. You are solving for w so this means you want to have the "w" on one side of the equal side all by itself. Start by dividing both sides by "l" V/L=LWH/L This will give you: v/l=wh Now you only need to get the "h" on the other side. So divide both sides by "h" V/LH=W Your done. Your final solution is: Width = Volume/(Length times Height)

Ok , so what you have to do is get w by itself V=lwh Ok so w is being multiplied by lh. ( according to the commutative property lwh = whl = hlw it doesnt matter what order they're in. so to get w by its self you have to do the opposite operation. division is the opposite of multiplication. so divide both sides by lh. (v)/lh = (lwh)/lh simplify v/lh = w final answer... w = v/lh I hope this helps, MusicMan

V=lwh V-volume l- length w-width h-hight Volume= Length*width*hight So if you want to find out the volume of a box, you multiply the length of the box times the width of the box times the hight of the box Hope I helped!

With substitution it becomes a quadratic. Let u = w² and rewrite as: u² + 7u - 18 = 0 (u+9)(u-2) = 0 u = -9 and 2 = w² w = ±3i and ±√2

If you have your own answer to the question Solve for w in the equation V=lwh?, then you can write your own version, using the form below for an extended answer.
