All of the equations we have solved so far have been in the form of: 3 + x = -5 Now we will look at equations in the form of: 3x = -9 2/3 x = 18 -2/5 x = -6/7 Notice how they are “connected” to the variable. (by what operation?)

Properties of Equality Multiplication Property of Equality If a = b, then ca = cb Division Property of EqualityIf a = b, then a = b c c c = 0

Just like addition and subtraction transformations, what ever you do to one side of the equation, you MUST do to the other. If you multiply one side by two, you must multiply the other side by two.

Solve: -3x = 15 -3x = 15 divide by -3 -3 -3 x = -5 simplify Solving Equations Using Multiplication & Division Transformations
7.
Solve: -3x = 15 -3x = 15 You could also Mult by – 1/3 (-1/3) (-3x) = 15 (-1/3) 1x = -5 x = -5 Is dividing by -3 the same thing as multiplying by -1/3? YES!!
