don't forget to include decimals and negative answers, and http://www.freemathvideos.com In this video series I show you how to solve two step equations. To solve two step equations we have to isolate the variable. Unlike one step equations we now have two operations to undo that are being applied to our variable. We follow the reverse order of operations by undoing subtraction and addition first and then multiplication and division.

Make sure you have two examples with the variable in front and behind http://www.freemathvideos.com In this video series I show you how to solve one step equations by using the inverse operation property of equality. When solving for a variable in an equation it is important to isolate the variable. We do this by undoing what is happening to the variable. We undo this by applying the inverse operations.

1.) Locate your variable you will need to isolate/solve for/get by itself.2.) List the mathematical operation that are being performed on the variable.(what is happening to your variable?)3.) Undo operation adding/subtracting/multiplying/dividing by using the inverse operation(what do you need to do to undo what is happening to your variable?)4.) Check to make sure your variable is isolated/alone and equal to a value.(Does your variable equal something?6.)Check your solution by plugging in your value for your variable back into the original solution.(Do you have an equivalent equation?)(Reflexive property)

How does inverse operatins help us solve one-step equations

How do we use inverse operations to represent simpler equivalent equations?

How do we determine which step to take when solving an equation?

http://www.freemathvideos.com In this video series I work through important definitions and processes for solving equations. When solving equations it is important to understand why and how we solve not only one step equations but literal and multi step equations. Understanding definitions and processes will help you apply the same rules from simple to hard problems.

http://www.freemathvideos.com In this video series i show you how to solve literal equations. Literal equations are equations with two or more variables that are not the same. When solving literal equations we will apply the same processes as solving equations with one variable. Tags: literal, solving, solve, equation, how to, learn, variable, unknown, expression

don't forget to include decimals and negative answers http://www.freemathvideos.com in this video series I show you how to solve multi-step equations when the variable/s are on the same side. When we have multiple variables on the same side it is important to simplify using the order of operations and combine like terms. Once we have our equation in two step form we can solve by using the two step process.

1.) Simplify your Equation( If you have multiple fractions multiply by the LCM) Multiple decimals multiply by a power of 10)(If there are terms you can combine, combine them)(Use Distributive Property if need be)2.)Use your inverse operations to undue the operations on your variable addition and subtraction.(undo what is preventing your variable from being by itself)3.) Use your inverse operations to undo multiplication and division(undo what is happening to your variable)4.) Check your answer

http://www.freemathvideos.com In this video series I show to solve a multi-step equations when we have a variables on both sides of an equation. The first step when solving equations with variables on both sides of the equal sign is to get the variables on the same side. Once we have the variables on the same side we can combine like terms to have one variable to isolate. We then apply our process for solving equations.
