Homework Help: Algebra

Posted by Shelbourne on Tuesday, January 6, 2009 at 4:32pm.

I was given this example for solving an equation

ax=b

1/2(ax)=1/2b

(1/2a)x=b/a

x=b/a

I do not understand why you would multiply ax by 1/2. I also do not get why canceling out 1/a times a/1 leads to a transferring to the other side. Thanks for your clarifications!! :)
