Today I'm going to show you how to solve 2 step multiplying and dividing equations, and a distributive equation.First here are 3 definitions you should know:

####
Coefficient- The number that's multiplied by a variable in an equation eg.)** ****2x + 1= 9**

Constant- The number that doesn't change its value**eg.) 2x + 1= 9**

Variable- A letter/symbol used for representing a number

#### eg.) 2x + 1= 9

__2 Step Multiplication:__

**Then you cancel the constant by using zero pairs**

4 4

__4x__=__20__4 4

Next you divide both sides by it's coefficient.

**x= 5**

Now that you know what x is, you verify.

**4x + 3=23**

Always write the equation.

**4(5) + 3=23**

Replace the x with 5.

**20 + 3=23**

Next I did 4(5) which is 20.

23=23

23=23

You always write that in the end when you verify.

Here's a link you could go to about 2 step multiply equations.

__2 Step Division:__

2

__x__+ 5=82

First you isolate the variable by using a zero pair

2

__x__+ 5 -5=8 -52

Next you multiply the variable and do the same thing on the other side.

2

__(2)x__= 3(2)2

**x=6**

Now you verify it.

Always remember to write the equation down.

2

__x__+ 5 = 82

Now substitute the x with the 6.

2

__6__+ 5= 82

Divide the coefficient.

**3+5=8**

Then you verify it by adding it.

**8=8**

That's how you vertify

Here's a link to know more about 2 step division.

__Distributive property:__

**2 (x -1) = 6**

First you multiply the constant with the variable by it's coefficient.

**2 (x-1) =6**

x-1

Then you will have:

x-1

**2x - 2 =6**

Next you solve it just like the 2 step multiply

**2x -2 =6**

2x -2 +2 =6+2

2 2

x=4

2x -2 +2 =6+2

__2x__=__8__2 2

x=4

**2x -2 =6**

2(4) -2=6

8 -2 =6

6=6

2(4) -2=6

8 -2 =6

6=6
