**One-Step Algebra Equations**

Steps to solving One Step Algebra Equations:

1:

**Isolate**the variable (variable- a letter representing an unknown/unlike number)2:

**Cancel**using the opposite; if there's a constant use zero pair(constant- the integer in an algebraic expression or equation)

3:

**Balance**, do the same on the other side of the equal sign4:

**Verify**to check- solve to equalityHere are some examples:
