    I know you have to switch it so it becomes L*W=A

    "solve for W" means we want W by itself right now we have A = L*W, so we want to move L to the other side. we can do this by dividing both sides by L, giving us: A/L = W does that make sense?

    if we want L by itself, we divide both sides by W A = L*W A/W = L
