# Solving A = (B + C) / D - Isolate for C

• Dazed
In summary, to isolate for the variable C in the equation A = (B + C) / D, you need to multiply both sides by D and subtract B to get the equation C = A * D - B. It is important to use proper parentheses when solving longer equations on a calculator to ensure accurate answers.

Does anybody see a problem with this?

Isolate for the variable given. Show all of your work.

A = (B + C) / D
isolate for C

A = (B + C) / D

A * D = B + C

C = A * D – B

Why that looks perfect.

Not trying to be stupid, but never forget to use the proper () if you put it in a calculator when it gets longer than this. It can drastically effect your answer. I found out the hard way a while ago... Just a heads up

Yeah, more than likely what steve said is your problem.

Multiply each side by D, and subtract by B will always give you the correct equation for C if this is the previous formula..

## 1. What does it mean to "isolate for C" in the equation A = (B + C) / D?

Isolating for C means rearranging the equation so that C is on one side of the equals sign by itself. This allows us to solve for the value of C.

## 2. Why is it necessary to isolate for C in this equation?

In order to solve for the value of C, we need to isolate it on one side of the equation. This allows us to clearly see the relationship between C and the other variables in the equation.

## 3. What are the steps to isolate for C in the equation A = (B + C) / D?

The steps to isolate for C are as follows:

1. Distribute the division by D to the terms inside the parentheses, giving A * D = B + C
2. Subtract B from both sides of the equation, giving A * D - B = C
3. Finally, divide both sides by 1 to isolate C and get the final answer of C = (A * D - B) / 1

## 4. Can the steps to isolate for C be applied to other equations?

Yes, the general steps of distributing, simplifying, and isolating can be applied to other equations in order to solve for a specific variable.

## 5. What is the importance of isolating for C in scientific research?

Isolating for a specific variable allows scientists to understand its individual impact on the overall equation or experiment. This allows for more accurate analysis and conclusions to be drawn.
