How do you solve two-step equations with fractions?

Equations can be tricky, and solving two step equations is an important step beyond solving equations in one step. Solving two-step equations will help introduce students to solving equations in multiple steps, a skill necessary in Algebra I and II. To solve these types of equations, we use additive and multiplicative inverses to isolate and solve for the variable.

How do I find the slant height of a rectangular prism?

A prism is a three-dimensional solid with two parallel bases, or faces, that are congruent.[1] The shape of the base determines what type of prism you have, such as a rectangular or triangular prism. Because it is a 3D shape, finding the volume (space inside) of a prism is a common task; however, sometimes you will need to find the height of a prism. Finding the height is possible if you have enough information already given: either the volume, or the surface area and perimeter of the base. The formulas described in these methods can work for prisms with bases of any shape, provided you know the formula for finding the area of that shape.
