Multivariable equation

An equation with more than one variable is called a multivariate equation.

a formula

That depends on the equation. In general, you'll try to isolate the variable, by using operations (on both sides of the equation) that get rid of anything other than the variable, on the side the variable is on.

It helps to visualize the problem and to think better about the way(s) you're going to solve it. After you draw a picture, you place there the known information, and denote by a letter the unknown(s). Since you've organized everything on the picture, it's easier to relate things with each other by using the knowledge of geometry. For example, if the equation contains more than one variable, you can express the variable for which you want to solve the equation in terms of other variable(s) (the geometric formulas are very handy).

A = b.

Sure. You can always 'solve for' a variable, and if it happens to be the only variable in the equation, than that's how you solve the equation.
