Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, we learn how to solve a two-step rational equation. To do so, we start by simplifying the equation as much as possible, often by getting rid of the fractions. Then, we use inverse operations to isolate the variable, being careful not to confuse the negative sign with the negative variable. By following these steps, we can successfully solve rational equations with ease.

Lesson Description:

Solving a two step equation rational 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.
