In this Pre-Algebra lesson, the properties of equality are used to solve equations. The lesson covers how to add or subtract the same number from both sides of the equation and how to multiply or divide both sides by the same number. The transcript includes examples of solving basic equations and more complicated ones involving combining like terms. The lesson emphasizes the importance of getting the variable by itself to find its value.
