   To solve for one unknown variable, use
mathematical operations to isolate that
variable alone on one side of the
equation.

   Note that you cannot always do this, i.e., find a
‘closed form solution’, in all cases, e.g., you
cannot solve the following expression for r:

       Equations in One Unknown in Finance
    Many of the problems we have looked at
already are equations in one unknown,
and we shall use this frequently when we
come to the sections on the time value of
money.

Equations in Two Unknowns

   To solve:
 1) Solve either equation for one variable.
 2) Substitute that into the other equation, so
that it becomes one equation with one
known.
 3) Solve for that unknown.

 4) Use that unknown to get an equation that
solves for the other unknown.
