How to Solve Equations with Variables on Both Sides - Algebra I
In this video you will learn how to solve an equation with variables on both sides. The first step is to combine like terms. Then use inverse operations to eliminate the values that are being added, subtracted, etc. to the variable. Inverse operations are opposite operations. The inverse of addition is subtraction and the inverse of multiplication is division. Equations with variables on both sides often have the same variable which you have to find the value of. Otherwise, if there are two different variables, solve for the given variable.
