Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, you will learn how to solve multi-step equations with fractions. The first step is to simplify and get rid of the fractions by either multiplying by the reciprocal or multiplying by what's on the bottom. Once the fractions are gone, you can solve the equation as you normally would. However, if the denominators are the same, you can also work with the fractions to solve the equation. Remember to always simplify and get the variable on one side before solving.

Lesson Description:

How to solve a multi step equation with fractions

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.
