I have a lot of difficulty when the question asks to put the word problem into formula form... such as p in terms of t etc. What are the strategies for beating these types of problems??

Have you tried picking numbers? Sometimes it's easier to assign a number to x, y or both to answer questions that involve unknown variables without specific numbers.
