Question

You learned to solve addition equations by first reasoning with bar models and then with inverse operations. Now that you have solved multiplication equations by reasoning with bar models, how do you think that you can solve these equations without using the bar models?

Solution

Verified

We can use inverse operations to solve multiplication equations like we did with addition equations. The inverse operation of multiplication is division so we can divide both sides of the equation by its coefficient to solve for the variable.
