What do you mean isolate formulas? Do you have an example?

You must practice algebra (math) and then you will be able to do physics.

If we have: $\text{speed} = \text{distance}/\text{time}$ To isolate distance in the equation, multiplying both sides of the equation by time $\text{speed}\times\text{time} = \text{distance}$ Now to isolate time in the equation, dividing both sides of the equation by speed $\text{time} = \text{distance}/\text{speed}$

you must pay attention to sentence structure, then you can do physics. A "formula" is one term in an expression (v_o t , or ½at^2 ). An expression is one side of an equation. Usually, the physics is figuring out what equation is appropriate then use math (algebra) to isolate whatever thing is asked for.
