Solving multiplication equations

When solving multiplication equations, they will have this form:   ax = c or bx = d, or cx = f, etc

Recall that ax + b = c is a linear equation

Thus, the equation ax = c is a linear equation with b = 0

You can also solve ax = c in one step.

When solving one step equation of the form ax = c, just divide both sides by of the equation by a.

Example #1:


Example #2:


Before you look at example #3, I strongly encourage you to review multiplication and division of fractions

Example #3:

Study example #3 carefully and remember that anything divided by the same thing is 1. That is why 2/5 divided by 2/5 is 1.Also, it is perfectly OK to write 10 as 10/1 because anything divided by 1 gives you the same thing.
