# Kinematic/Isolating Problem

1. Oct 23, 2007

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Alright so I'm in grade 11 Phys Uni-prep class(in canada so im like 10x behind comparing to the states) and I'm having troubles Isolating some stuff.

2. Relevant equations
Eg.
d=(v1+v2/2)t
So lets say I want to isolate v1. I know how to isolate it for t which would be
d/v1+v2/2=t

3. The attempt at a solution
So my attempt for isolating v1 would be wrong which i already know.
v1=....... from d=(v1+v2/2)t

Plz need some help before thrusday, have a small quiz
I know what to do when I get the numbers, just some of the isolation stuff im iffy about.

Lets get the t on the other side:

$$d/t = v_1 + {v_2}/2$$

Does this help??

but i was hoping(im not sure if this is possible im just giviing myself random questions to do)
