# Step by Step

The type of equations found on the GED® are multi-step but don't let that intimidate you. You don't have to know everything you need to do, just the next step.

## STEP 1: WATCH THE VIRTUAL CLASS VIDEO AND TAKE NOTES

### Follow these wisdom principles to solve linear equations.

Simplify the left and right hand sides of the equation.

Get the variable terms (letters) to the same side.

Isolate the variable- get the letter alone on one side.
