Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, you learned how to solve a simple one-step inequality using the division property of equality. By using inverse operations, you were able to isolate the variable and flip the inequality sign when dividing by a negative number. It's important to remember to always write the variable first and to graph the solution on a number line to check if the inequality is true or false.

Lesson Description:

Solving a simple one step inequality using division property of equality

I show how to solve math problems online during live instruction in class. This is my way of providing free tutoring for the students in my class and for students anywhere in the world. Every video is a short clip that shows exactly how to solve math problems step by step. The problems are done in real time and in front of a regular classroom. These videos are intended to help you learn how to solve math problems, review how to solve a math problems, study for a test, or finish your homework. I post all of my videos on YouTube, but if you are looking for other ways to interact with me and my videos you can follow me on the following pages through My Blog, Twitter, or Facebook.
