There are some questions which have really confused me and aren't covered in the text book so if anyone knows how to solve these, please share your wisdom.
Ok so I can't believe I actually know what you are referring to - my cousin and I were just chatting on math methods. He was getting math methods help that worked for him - not sure if it will work for you - your miles may vary.

We were mostly debating as to what's the practical use for this course as he was thinking about an engineering degree, and one of his class mate want to be an art history major, lol.

If you want to pass you've just got to play the trump card man.

As a former algebra student I don't see where enough information is provided in this post to actually solve these variable formulas but they are certainly very interesting nonetheless, regardless of what they actually mean.
The following questions are the ones I'm having trouble with. I've attempted them but my answers just don't look right.
I agree that they don't look right, but what's important is thinking critically, being creative, and communication. My advice, and I'm just guessing here, but just show as much work as possible.

To sum it up, it looks to me like the goal here is to either attempt to simplify old formulas just to get the ol' brain firing, or optimally, to actually simplify an old formula.
To succeed in simplifying a preexisting physics formula is like gold to a surprisingly large demographic of math students, but the motherlode is in figuring out engineering/physics formulas from scratch for whatever reason usually to streamline some aspect of application or for reference. These practical formulas, such as force produced from different types of fuel combustion, how fast a hot air balloon flys away as more heat is pumped in, or the rate at which rubber tires degrade as driven over asphalt for instance often end up becoming fodder for a growing number of college kids around the world. Sorry I probably didn't help you much sicku, but I'm glad you posted this I thought it was cool as heck! Thank you buddy.
