In this lesson, NAMI teaches how to solve one-step equations using the multiplication property. By dividing both sides of the equation, students can isolate the variable and solve for it. NAMI uses several examples, including equations with negative numbers and fractions, to demonstrate the process. The goal of the lesson is to help students build confidence in solving equations and prepare them for more complicated problems in the future.
A few quick examples of solving one step, one variable, equations by dividing on both sides.
