Solving One-Step Equations
Solve Equations Using Addition and Subtraction If the same number is added to each side of an equation, the
resulting equation is equivalent to the original one. In general if the original equation involves subtraction, this property
will help you solve the equation. Similarly, if the same number is subtracted from each side of an equation, the resulting
For any numbers a, b, and c, if a = b, then a + c = b + c.
Subtraction Property of Equality
For any numbers a, b, and c, if a = b, then a – c = b – c.
Example 1: Solve m – 32 = 18.
m – 32 = 18
Example 2: Solve 22 + p = –12.
22 + p = –12
Original equation
m – 32 + 32 = 18 + 32 Add 32 to each side.
m = 50
Original equation
22 + p – 22 = –12 – 22 Subtract 22 from each side.
p = –34
Simplify.
Simplify.
The solution is –34.

Solving One-Step Equations
Solve Equations Using Multiplication and Division If each side of an equation is multiplied by the same number,
the resulting equation is equivalent to the given one. You can use the property to solve equations involving multiplication
and division. To solve equations with multiplication and division, you can also use the Division Property of Equality.
If each side of an equation is divided by the same number, the resulting equation is true.
Multiplication Property of Equality
For any numbers a, b, and c, if a = b, then ac = bc.
Division Property of Equality
For any numbers a, b, and c, with c ≠ 0, if a = b, then  =
