Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, we learn how to solve a two-step literal equation by first identifying the variable and isolating it. Then, we use inverse operations to simplify the equation and solve for the variable. It's important to remember that literal equations will usually involve multiple variables and may not result in a direct numeric answer, but rather a numeric answer combined with variables.

Lesson Description:

How to solve a two step literal equation

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.
