SOLVING BASIC EQUATION [LEVEL 1]
Solving an equation means finding a value for “x” sothat both sides of an equation will be equal
The most basic equations require only multiplicationor division to solve for an unknown value
Ex: If 4 apples is equal to $5, how much is each apple?
Split each side into four groups
So each apple is equal to $1.25
If we were to solve thisalgebraically, divide bothsides of the equation by 4
