# Solving One-Step Division Equations

Some linear equations can be solved with a single operation. For this type of equation, use the inverse operation to solve.

Example :

Solve for $x$ .

$\frac{x}{3}=5$

The inverse operation of division is multiplication. So, multiply both sides by $3$ .

$\begin{array}{l}\frac{x}{3}×3=5×3\\ x=15\end{array}$
