To solve an equation means to undo all the operations of the equation leaving the variable by itself on one side. This is known as isolating the variable. One-Step Equations are called one-step equations because we can isolate the variable on one side of the equation by performing one operation to both sides of the equation. To solve our equations we will be using the properties of equality given here above.
Let us first review the addition and subtraction property of equality which tells if we have the equation a equals b if we add the same value to both sides of the equation we maintain equality. It is also true if we subtract the same value on both sides of the equation we also maintain equality.
Then for the multiplication and division property of equality, again if we start with the equation a equals b then if we multiply both sides of the equation by the same value we also maintain equality and we also maintain equality if we divide both sides of the equation by the same value.
