In this lesson, students use the inverse operation for multiplication and division in order to solve for linear equations. They also employ the reciprocal when addressing fractional coefficients in these equations. The properties of Equality are a portion of the lesson, , including the Addition Property of Equality, the Subtraction Property of Equality, the Multiplication Property of Equality, and the Division Property of Equality. I have included two Real-Life word problems about the time it takes the sound from thunder to travel; they are asked to write an equation for the given situation using multiplication, and then they are to solve. Multiple practice problems are included with a solution page so students may check their work. Please enjoy!
