How do you solve #V = lwh# for #w#? Algebra Linear Equations Equations with Variables on Both Sides 1 Answer smendyka Jan 4, 2017 #V/lh = w# Explanation: To solve #V = lwh# for #w# we need to divide each side of the equation by #color(red)(l)color(blue)(h)# #V/(color(red)(l)color(blue)(h)) = (lwh)/(color(red)(l)color(blue)(h))# #V/(color(red)(l)color(blue)(h)) = (color(red)(cancel(color(black)(l)))wcolor(bue)(cancel(color(black)(h))))/(cancel(color(red)(l))cancel(color(blue)(h)))# #V/(lh) = w# #w = V/(lh)# Answer link Related questions How do you check solutions to equations with variables on both sides?
