I understood none of today's lesson and I need an explanation on a couple problems, the problems where you have to take an equation with multiple variables and make it so one side has a single isolated variable. Please explain these: 2m - nx = x + 4 solve for x x/a - 1 = y/b solve for x V=1/3 (pi) r^2 (h) solve for H A= (f+g/2) h solve for g I only need explanations.

    2m - 4 = x(1 + n)

    general guidelines to follow: to solve for a particular variable isolate all the terms with that variable to one side of the equation. whatever you have to do to isolate the variable all do the same operation to the other side of the equation to maintain the balance. simplify. next divide each side of the equation by the coefficient of the desired variable.
