Thank you!Found 2 solutions by solver91311, josmiceli:Answer by solver91311(16885)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Solving a formula for a given variable means to rearrange the formula so that the "solve for" variable is by itself on one side of the equals sign and everything else is on the other side. For this one, divide by . John My calculator said it, I believe it, that settles it Answer by josmiceli(9678)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The basic rule is: Whatever you do to one side of the (=) sign, you must do to the other side. When you're done, the left side is still equal to the right side. Suppose I say Is it OK to divide both sides by 3? yes because any number divided by itself = 1 ----------- F = ma I can divided both sides by m F/m = ma/m This is the same as F/m = (m/m) x a and notice m/m = 1, so F /m = a That's the answer Hope this helps
