Leopold is extremely joyful to post this vintage publication as a part of our wide vintage Library assortment. some of the books in our assortment were out of print for many years, and consequently haven't been obtainable to most of the people. the purpose of our publishing application is to facilitate fast entry to this large reservoir of literature, and our view is this is an important literary paintings, which merits to be introduced again into print after many many years.

Copyright © 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. 2 Formulas OBJECTIVES 1 Solve a formula for a specified variable. 2 Solve applied problems using formulas. 3 Solve percent problems. A mathematical model is an equation or inequality that describes a real situation. Models for many applied problems already exist; they are called formulas. A formula is a mathematical equation in which variables are used to describe a relationship.

P Ϫ 2L 2W Step 3 Divide both sides by 2. 2 2 P Ϫ 2L P Ϫ 2L W or W 2 2 Now Try Exercise 9. C A U T I O N In Step 3 of Example 1, you cannot simplify the fraction by dividing 2 into the term 2L. The subtraction in the numerator must be done before the division. P Ϫ 2L PϪL 2 EXAMPLE 2 Solving a Formula with Parentheses The formula for the perimeter of a rectangle is sometimes written in the equivalent form P 2͑L ϩ W͒. Solve this form for W. *Using the distributive property to write ab ϩ ac as a͑b ϩ c͒ is called factoring.

4. Use substitution to decide whether Ϫ2 is a solution of 5͑x ϩ 4͒ Ϫ 3͑x ϩ 6͒ 9͑x ϩ 1͒. If it is not a solution, explain why. 5. The equation 4͓x ϩ ͑2 Ϫ 3x͔͒ 2͑4 Ϫ 4x͒ is an identity. Let x represent the number of letters in your last name. Is this number a solution of this equation? Check your answer. 6. 06͑10 Ϫ x͒͑100͒ is equivalent to which of the following? A. 06x B. 60 Ϫ 6x C. 6 Ϫ 6x D. 06x 7. Identify each as an expression or an equation. (a) 3x 6 (c) 5x ϩ 6͑x Ϫ 3͒ 12x ϩ 6 (b) 3x ϩ 6 (d) 5x ϩ 6͑x Ϫ 3͒ Ϫ ͑12x ϩ 6͒ 8.
