### The symbol equation for the density=mass/volume equation is ρ=m/V

A symbol equation is the same as a word equation except it uses the symbols to represent quantities rather than words.

For the density equation, which is:

**density = mass ÷ volume**

The symbol version of the equation is:

**ρ = m ÷ V**

This equation can be written in a number of different formats (*note these all represent the same equation*):

**ρ = m ÷ V**

**ρ = m / V**
