In this lesson, the instructor explains how to solve rational literal equations. Using the example of a fraction, the instructor shows how to use inverse operations to undo any divisions or multiplications being done to the variable. By multiplying by the reciprocal of the denominator or dividing by the coefficient, the variable can be solved for. The key takeaway is to remember that fractions represent division and to use inverse operations to undo any operations being done to the variable.

Lesson Description:

Solving a rational 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.
