  1. v Would equal w divided by at minus 1. Great effort for getting that one
  2. correct. When we multiplied both sides by the lowest common denominator, or vt,
  3. we can see that these two factors will cancel. We're left with avt equals v plus
  4. w. We subtract v from both sides to solve for v, or really to isolate it on one
  5. side of the equation. Now that we're here, we have to factor this V out. When we
  6. factor the V out, we'll have V times AT minus one, and then we can divide by
  7. this quantity to get one V alone. V would equal this expression. Keep in mind,
  8. this is simplifying the one. I hope you're becoming a pro at these.
