ex. 2x = 10

100 / x =5'

**Easy Steps to Solve an Algebra equation**:

- Isolate the variable ( Variable - a letter that represents a number in an algebraic equation or expression)
- Cancel the constant using zero pair ( Constant - the integer in an algebraic equation or expression)
- Balance- doing it to both sides
- Verify to check ( equality )

**Expression:**pattern- many answers

ex. 5x

**Equation**

**:**only has one answer- has an equal sign

ex. 5x=25

**HOW TO SOLVE ONE STEP EQUATIONS -**

Just use the 4 steps of solving an Algebra Equation and you'll do fine,

**For example,**

- Isolate the variable
- Cancel the constant using zero pair
- Balance- doing it to both sides
- Verify to check ( equality )

**Multiplying One Step Equations**

Use the 4 steps again :

- Isolate the variable
- Cancel the constant using zero pair
- Balance- doing it to both sides
- Verify to check ( equality )
