Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, you will learn how to solve one-step equations using the multiplication property of equality. The instructor explains the process of isolating the variable by performing the same operation on both sides of the equation. The lesson includes examples and a demonstration of how to use the multiplication property of equality to solve equations with fractions. Two different ways of writing the equations are also discussed, making it easier to understand the concept.

Lesson Description:

How to solve a one step equation by the multiplication 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.
