I already typed a long drawn out post, so I am going to simplfy it.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am having trouble using algebra to rearrange equation.

For Example,

v=d/t

And so, to solve for both t and d, I do the following

vt=d/t x t

vt=d

vt/v=d/v

t=d/v

I have difficulty with most if not all the other equations. For example, the formula for acceleration.

a=Vf-Vi/t

Solve for t

a=Vf-Vi/t

at=Vf-Vi/t x t

at + Vi=Vf -Vi + Vi

at+Vi=Vf

Vf-Vi/a=t

This is my attempt at it. I multiplied by t, then eliminated the negative, and finally divided by a.

Thank you ahead of time!
