Ok welcome to lesson 4 on equations.  This is the lesson where we put everything we learned about equations together so we can solve any equation.  Of course it would be nice if most equations we had to solve were one and two step equations.  For sure you need to master these basic equations for the GED.  However the reality is most equations we face in algebra and beyond require multiple steps.  Before you start this lesson make sure you understand the distributive property as we will be using it a lot to solve multi-step equations.

Things to focus on in this lesson:

• the steps to solve mulit-step equations
• when you have to apply the distributive property
• adding and subtracting variables and numbers to both sides of the equation
• how to verify your solution

#### Multi Step Equations

spend 5% of your time on identifying the problem and 95% of your time on the solution

 Nice work! you finished lesson 4 on multi-step equations here are some things you should be able to do: * solve one, two and multi-step equations * handle equations that have fractions and decimals * verify the solution to an equation Now that you know how to solve equations and find a numeric solution, the next lesson will be about equations that solve for another variable- this lesson is a little difficult for most students.. Lesson 5: Formulas and Literal Equations

# You Will Not Learn Math Without Practicing Watching The Lesson Videos Are Not Enough!

## Don’t Waste Time And Start Building The Math Skills You Need For The GED!

Taking my free GED math course is a big step to help you prepare for the GED. The course will help you learn core middle and high school math skills but you also need to do your part and practice! As such I created a workbook for this course that is designed to give students practice problems and solutions to strengthen their skills. In order to truly master math concepts you must practice a wide variety of problems. This workbook is an extremely valuable supplement that all students using GED Math Lessons should have.
