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/lh = w

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"
This will give you:
Now you only need to get the "h" on the other side. So divide both sides by "h"
Your final solution is:
Width = Volume/(Length times Height)

Ok , so what you have to do is get w by itself
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
v/lh = w
w = v/lh
I hope this helps,

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!
