Example 1A: Solving Equations by Using Multiplication

Solve the equation.

Since j is divided by 3, multiply both sides by 3 to undo the division.

–24 = j

To check your solution, substitute –24 for j in the original equation.

Solve the equation. Check your answer.

Since p is divided by 5, multiply both sides by 5 to undo the division.

p = 50

Example 2A: Solving Equations by Using Division

Solve the equation. Check your answer.

9y = 108

Since y is multiplied by 9, divide both sides by 9 to undo the multiplication.

y = 12

Example 2B: Solving Equations by Using Division

Solve the equation. Check your answer.

–4.8 = –6v

Since v is multiplied by –6, divide both sides by –6 to undo the multiplication.

0.8 = v

Check It Out! Example 2b

Solve the equation. Check your answer.

0.5y = –10

Since y is multiplied by 0.5, divide both sides by 0.5 to undo the multiplication.

y = –20

Check It Out! Example 2c

Solve the equation. Check your answer.

15k = 75

Since k is multiplied by 15, divide both sides by 15 to undo the multiplication.

k = 5

Remember that dividing is the same as multiplying by the reciprocal. When solving equations, you will sometimes find it easier to multiply by a reciprocal instead of dividing. This is often true when an equation contains fractions.

Example 4: Application

one-fourth times earnings equals college fund

Write an equation to represent the relationship.

Substitute 285 for c. Since m is divided by 4, multiply both sides by 4 to undo the division.

Ciro earned $1140 mowing lawns.

m = $1140

The distance in miles from the airport that a plane should begin descending, divided by 3, equals the plane's height above the ground in thousands of feet. A plane began descending 45 miles from the airport. Use the equation to find how high the plane was flying when the descent began.

Distance divided by 3 equals height in thousands of feet

Write an equation to represent the relationship.

Substitute 45 for d.

15 = h

The plane was flying at 15,000 ft when the descent began.
