In the previous lessons, we have learned what a linear relationship is and its graphs and tables. In this lesson here, we will then learn how to solve one-step linear equations by multiplication and division.

Basic Concepts: Evaluating algebraic expressions, Solving one - step equations: $x + a = b$, Model and solve one-step linear equations: $ax = b$, $\frac{x}{a} = b$

Related Concepts: Express linear inequalities graphically and algebraically, Introduction to linear equations, Introduction to nonlinear equations
