When you're working on a problem do you try to stay away plugging in numbers too early? Like if a problem needs to have several things found to arrive at the final answer, do you make one large equation with only symbols *then* plug in numbers at the very end?

Also, when you get to the end of that a distinct relationship is found among the symbols. Is there anything from a creativity aspect that you do to gain more insight into the problem? I know this question seems a little strange, but I'm pretty new to Physics and want to develop some skills with solving problems as well as some creativity. Thanks.
