Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, students learn how to solve for a variable in an equation using subtraction and division. To get the variable by itself, the opposite operations must be applied. For example, to solve for V in an equation with subtraction, one must add the subtraction value to isolate the variable. Similarly, to solve for V in an equation with division, one must multiply by the inverse value. With practice, students can become proficient in these techniques and solve equations with ease.

Solving for X in an equation using subtraction and division

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.
