Rearrange each equation below by solving for x. Write each equation in the form x = ____. (Note that y will be in your answer). Homework Help ✎

  1. To solve for x, you need to isolate the x-term. There are two ways to start. You can isolate the x-term or eliminate the denominator.

    To isolate the x-term:

    To eliminate the denominator first:

  2. 3x + 2y = 6

    See part (a).

  3. y = x2

    Refer to part (c) of problem 1-37.

  4. y = x2 − 100

    Refer to part (d) of problem 1-37.

    This cannot be simplified. Why?
