**Solving Fraction Equations by Multiplying**

Lesson 5-5

2
**If the variable is in the fraction…**

When the variable is the numerator of the fraction, then it suggests a division problem. To solve a division problem, the inverse operation is multiplying.

3
**y 20 = 8 Example This equation reads “y divided by 8 equals 20.”**

The opposite of dividing by 8 is multiplying by 8. Multiply both sides by 8.

4
y 1 8 20 8 = 8 1 1 y 160 = 1 y = 160

5
Example 2 m 1 2 3 2 = 1 2 1 m = 6 1 m 6 =

6
**Check answers in the original equation.**

m = 3 2 6 = 3 2 = 3 3

7
**If the variable is being multiplied by a fraction…**

To isolate a variable that is being multiplied by a fraction, multiply by the reciprocal. Perform the same operation on the other side of the equation.
