Coefficient - The number that is placed before and multiplied by the variable.
Constant - A quantity that does not change its value.
Variable - A letter or symbol that is used to represent a number.
2 step multiply
The first thing you do is isolate the variable. To isolate the variable you need to make a zero pair for the constant.
After you isolate the variable you balance it, by dividing both sides by the coefficient and after that you simplify it.
Once you've find the solution, you verify by first rewriting the question.
Then you change the variable to the solution and multiply. In this case the solution is 2 and you multiply the coefficient (3) to 2.
After you multiply you add the coefficient to the constant..
And you got your answer.
2 step divide
First you isolate the variable like when you do multiplication by making a zero pair for your constant.
After you isolate the variable you balance it, by multiplying both sides by 2.
Now you verify, by rewriting the question.
Substitute or change the variable to the solution.
Now you divide the coefficient.
And that's how you to 2 step divide.
To distribute you first multiply the coefficient to the constant and variable
and you get.
Now you find the solution, by doing the 2 step multiply.
Now you verify by doing the 2 step multiply.
And that's how you distribute. I hope you learned about something in this blog.
