Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, we learn how to solve for x when the variable is on the right side of the equation and being divided. To begin, we simplify the equation by getting rid of the denominator. We then move the variable to the left side by subtracting any constants being added to it. Finally, we solve for x by isolating it on one side of the equation. By following these steps, we can easily solve equations where x is on the right side in a fraction.

Lesson Description:

Solving for x when your variable is on the right side and 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.
