Yes, that is often possible. It depends on the equation, of course - some equations have no solutions.

Can you solve for a variable in an equation?

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.


What is the math term VEST?

variable equation solve it test it


What number when substituded for the variable in an equation makes the equation true?

you have to solve the actual equation in order to answer this about your variable


Can you solve for a variable in an expression?

No, you can only simplify an expression. To solve for a variable, it must be in an equation.


Can you solve for a variable in an expression or equation?

you can only solve for one in an equation so it can equal something


Can you solve a variable with an equation?

When an equation has a variable in it (only one), then there are only certainvalues the variable can have that will make the equation a true statement."Solving" the equation means finding those values for the variable.


How do you solve an equation with 1 variable?

carefully


What does SOLVE stand for in math?

"Solve an equation" means "find out, for which values of the variable or variables is the equation true".


How do you solve an equation with a variable that is a fraction?

You solve the equation the same way as you would any other equation. Whether the variable is a fraction or otherwise will only become clear once you solve the equation. In other words, you don't initially KNOW whether the solution will be a fraction or not.


What does solve the equation mean?

Find values for the variable that satisfy the equation, that is if you replace those values for the variable into the original equation, the equation becomes a true statement.


How can you find a variable in math?

You find, or construct, an equation or set of equations which express the unknown variable in terms of other variables. Then you solve the equation(s), using algebra.You find, or construct, an equation or set of equations which express the unknown variable in terms of other variables.

How does writing equivalent equations help you solve a system of equations?

You can write an equivalent equation from a selected equation in the system of equations to isolate a variable. You can then take that variable and substitute it into the other equations. Then you will have a system of equations with one less equation and one less variable and it will be simpler to solve.
