Lesson Summary:

This lesson teaches how to solve equations with denominators by multiplying both sides by the denominator. This effectively cancels out the denominator, allowing for standard algebraic operations to be performed on the equation. The transcript uses an example to demonstrate the process and emphasizes the importance of simplifying the fraction before multiplying by the denominator.

Lesson Description:

Solving an equation by simplifying by getting rid of the denominator

I show how to solve math problems online during live instruction in class. This is my way of providing free tutoring for the students in my class and for students anywhere in the world. Every video is a short clip that shows exactly how to solve math problems step by step. The problems are done in real time and in front of a regular classroom. These videos are intended to help you learn how to solve math problems, review how to solve a math problems, study for a test, or finish your homework. I post all of my videos on YouTube, but if you are looking for other ways to interact with me and my videos you can follow me on the following pages through My Blog, Twitter, or Facebook.
