    This lesson explains how to solve linear equations starting with the basics and with a number line by explaining the idea of what it means to solving an equation. As the lesson moves on, more complicated problems involving multiplication, division, and distributing through parentheses are solved. All steps involved in solving equations as well as checking your solution are explained. This is a great place to start if you are just learning to solve equations.
