Solving Formulas - Concept

Concept Concept (1)

Solving formulas for a variable is a critical skill in the Geometry area unit because many problems will give the area of a polygon and ask for a side, height, or some other dimension. In these cases, simply substituting and typing into a calculator will not yield the correct answer. The successful Geometry student must be capable of substituting into a formula and then solving formulas for the one remaining variable.
