Linear equations in one variable
Extend your equation solving skills by tackling fancier equations that have variables on both sides.
Sal solves the equation 2x + 3 = 5x - 2.
Sal solves the equation 20 - 7x = 6x - 6.
Practice solving one-variable equations like 20 - 7x = 6x - 6, where the variable appears on both sides of the equals sign.
Sal solves the equation 7 - 10/x = 2 + 15/x. There are many ways to solve this equation. Sal's method uses the distributive property.
Sal solves the equation (3/4)x + 2 = (3/8)x - 4 using the distributive property
