# Solve the Equations

** Multiplication property of equality:** If you multiply both sides of an algebraic equation by the same number, except zero, or divide both sides of an algebraic equation by the same number, except zero, the equations will have the same solution.

Use the multiplication property of equality to solve each equation. Check your solution by substituting the solution into the original equation.

- 4
*x*= 24 - $\frac{1}{2}$
*x*= 7 - 1.5
*x*= 12

## Hint:

What number can you multiply or divide by to get *x* by itself on one side of the equation?
