Relativistic equations, how does one isolate variables?

It appears that these equations are defying regular algebraic techniques, must their variables be solved by numerical techniques?

I've never run across a problem. Which variable(s) are you trying to solve for?

My guess is that you are trying to solve for v, which is buried in a reciprocal square root. If that's the case, then I assure you that normal algebra does indeed work.
