Khan Academy: "One-Step and Linear Equations"

Watch these videos and take notes. The first video provides examples of another type of basic equation that can be solved in one step. The second is an example of a one-step equation written in a form x/a = b. Sal Khan uses this example to highlight that division is really the same operation as multiplication. The third contains examples of the equations of the form ax = b, but in some of them a and b are fractions. Instead of dividing by a fraction (a), you can multiply both sides of the equation by its reciprocal.
