In this lesson, you will learn how to solve one-step equations using the division property of equality. By dividing both sides of the equation by a certain number, you can isolate the variable and solve for it. Remember to use the reciprocal when dividing by fractions and simplify your answer when necessary. With this simple technique, you can easily solve equations with one operation.
How to solve a one step equation using the division property of equality
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.
