Examples, solutions, videos, and worksheets to help Grade 7 and Grade 8 students learn how to solve one-step literal equations.
There are two sets of solving literal equations.
Solving literal equations involves isolating a specific variable in an equation that contains multiple variables. The goal is to rearrange the equation to solve for the desired variable. Here’s how to solve literal equations step by step:
Here’s an example to illustrate the process:
Example: Solve the equation x + y = 12 for x.
Solving literal equations follows the same principles as solving regular equations, but you’re just isolating a specific variable instead of finding a numerical solution.
