Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, you will learn how to solve two-step equations with fractional coefficients. The instructor demonstrates two methods: the traditional way of solving equations with fractions and an alternative method of multiplying every term by the common denominator to eliminate the fractions. By using these methods, you will be able to solve equations with fractional coefficients with ease.

Lesson Description:

How to solve a two step equation with fractional coefficients

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.

    This lesson shows how to solve a two-step equation. The example problem explained in this lesson involved fractions. Two different methods of solving this problem are shown. The first is the customary way of subtracting and then multiplying by the reciprocal. The other method is to remove all fractions from the start by multiplying by the LCD.
