Diana's Algebra Post

Algebra: Writing mathematical phrases using letters to show numbers
Variable: The unknown, Use a letter to represent a number
Constant: The integer in an algebraic expression or equation
When there are (-) multiply and divide cancel with the same integer

Solving Step One Equations:
1) Isolate the variable
2) Cancel the constant using zero pair
3) Balance, doing it to both sides
4) Verify to check

Solving Step Two Equations:
1. Isolate the variable
2. Cancel the constant
3. Balance
4. Simplify the variable
5. Balance
6. Verify

I found this "website" very helpful, maybe it will help you understand algebra more too.
