Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, the instructor teaches how to solve a two-step equation when the variable is being divided. The first step is to apply the reverse order of operations, using the inverse operation of addition or subtraction. It's essential to keep the equation balanced, so whatever operation is done to one side must also be done to the other side. The second step is to undo the division by using multiplication. The instructor explains how to cancel out the fraction and solve for the variable, demonstrating an easy way to solve a two-step equation.

Lesson Description:

Solving a two-step equation when your variable is being divided

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.
