Overview

Examples of "formulas" that you have likely seen are a2+b2=c2, D=RT, A=½bh, etc. Today's material concentrates on evaluating such formulas for given values of the variables. Watch your units when you are evaluating! We also learn to rearrange the formulas by solving for a specific variable like rewriting A=½bh as h=2A/b. This will be useful when dealing with real-world applications.
