# maths rearranging (C1) help! watch

1. Need help with my rearranging please:

y=3w-v/4x make x subject of formula

w=t^2(2u-3v)/5s make v subject of formula

Any help appreciated!
2. Make sure anything involving the thing you need to make the subject of is on one side first.

In the first case you can rewrite it as

In the second case you can get (quite easily) and work from there.
3. in general...
multiply out, move everything that includes the subject to one side, factorise, then divide through to get the subject by itself.
4. on the first one is it 3w-v all over 4x or 3w- (v/4x)

assuming what you have done so far is right because I haven't checked
take the 2u over to the other side and divide by -3 ?

basically do exactly what i said...

multiply it all out....

put everything with v in on the same side...

divide through to get v by itself...

you can do it without expanding and some of the time it might be quicker. but generally i find it easier to just expand everything out and go from there especially when you can't see what to do
