Ways of Thinking: Make Connections

Take notes about your classmates’ methods for solving equations using the multiplication property of equality.

Hint:

As your classmates present, ask questions such as:

  • How did you know whether to divide or multiply to solve the equation?
  • Why do you need to do the same thing on both sides of an equation?
  • What could you do if you checked your solution and found that your solution was incorrect?
