**dividing, multiplying,**and

**distributive.**

The steps for the

**dividing**are:

Isolate the variable.

**Eg:**

**x/2+6=11 ---> x/2=6-6=11**

Constant (zero pair)

Balance it out, meaning what you do to one side you do to the other.

**Eg:**

**x/2+6-6=11-6**

Multiply the denominator with the numerator and what you do to one side, you do to the other.

**Eg:**

**(2)x/2=5(2) ----> x=10**

The steps for

**multiplying**are:

1) Isolate the variable

2) Cancel the constant

3) Balance

4) Simplify

5) Cancel co-efficant (multiply or divide)

6) Balance

7) Simplify

Ax+ b=c

3x+4=10

3x+4-4=10

2) Cancel the constant

3) Balance

4) Simplify

5) Cancel co-efficant (multiply or divide)

6) Balance

7) Simplify

**Eg:**Ax+ b=c

3x+4=10

3x+4-4=10

__3x__=__6__
3 3

X=2

3x+4=10

3(2)+4=10

What you have to do for

**Distributive Property:**
You multiply the variable and the constant inside the bracket with the co-efficant number

3(x-8)=12

**eg:**3(x-8)=12

The 3 is what you multiply by

The x-8 is what you multiply.

x-8

x-8

x-8

8x3=24

24-8=12
