Dr. Carol Burns' "Solving Linear Equations Involving Fractions"

Read the introduction to the examples and work through the examples carefully. Note that these equations are solved here by a method different than the one that was used in the "Algebra: Linear Equations 2" video in subunit Instead of performing operations with fractions, Dr. Burns eliminates the fractions from the equation by multiplying both sides by their common denominator. Click on the "new problem" button at the end of the article to try a practice problem and check your answer. Continue this process by clicking on "new problem," and solve 10 problems. You can also create a worksheet of 10 problems by clicking on the button at the bottom of the page titled "Click Here for a Randomly Generated Worksheet and Answers." The answers will be provided at the end of the worksheet.
