8th Grade Math - Multiplication and Division Equations

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Solving equations that involve multiplication and division can be a bit tricky. The key is to remember to keep the delicate balance of the equation. To keep everything in check, whatever you do to one side you have to do to the other. So, if we multiply the left side by a number, you must also multiply the right side by the same number. And if you are unsure if you've done it right, you can always check the answer by plugging the solution into the original equation and seeing if the equation holds. It's important to check your work to make certain there is not a mistake. If you do find a mistake, check to see what you did wrong so you'll do it correctly next time.

Today we're jumping into 8th grade math with today's free math video.  Edward Burger will help you understand Multiplication and Division Equations as he explains the concept in 3 lectures. You'll learn exactly how to solve one-step equations by using multiplication or division.
