# How do you solve for v in x=vt ?

To solve for $v$ in the equation, simply divide both sides by $t$ and it follows that $v = \frac{x}{t}$

#### Explanation:

This is how to do it

given: $x = v t$

$\frac{x}{t} = \frac{v t}{t}$
also

$\frac{v t}{t} = \frac{x}{t}$

$\frac{v \cancel{t}}{\cancel{t}} = \frac{x}{t}$

$v = \frac{x}{t}$
