Solving One-Step Equations

Students learn that solving an equation for x means isolating the x on one side of the equation. To isolate the x, the following techniques are used. If a number is being added to x, subtract the number from both sides of the equation. If a number is being subtracted from x, add the number to both sides of the equation. If a number is being multiplied by x, divide both sides of the equation by the number. If a number is being divided by x, multiply both sides of the equation by the number.
