Worksheet Overview

Often we will be presented with a formula that will need to be manipulated in order to be useful to us. 

We may have to rearrange the formula, making a different letter the subject.


Use the rules of equations (i.e. do the same to both sides) to achieve this.



The formula for finding a temperature in degrees centigrade from one in Fahrenheit is shown below.  

Rearrange the formula to make F the subject.



Our aim is to get F on its own on the left-hand side.



And we're there!!


Now it's over to you.
