### Multiplication and Division Techniques

• For more complex equations, isolate the variable and solve the equation by using the multiplication property of equality. If you multiply each side of an equation by the same quantity, the resulting equation has the same solutions as the original one.

• You can also isolate the variable and solve the equation by using the division property of equality. If you divide each side of an equation by the same nonzero quantity, the resulting equation has the same solutions as the original one.

• Use these properties to convert an equation in which the variable has a coefficient different from 1 into an equation in which the coefficient is 1.
