Interactive video lesson plan for: How to Solve Literal Equations - Algebra I

Activity overview:

In this video you will learn how to solve literal equations. Literal Equations are equations that include more than one variable and you have to solve for one specific variable. In literal equations, when you solve for a variable you are just trying to isolate that variable. A solution to a literal equation could be x = b + 7. So you don't exactly get the value of the variable, just a solution. To isolate the variable, you have to get rid of anything that is being added, subtracted, etc. to the target variable. You do this by using inverse operations.
