Solving Equations Song - (To the tune of "If You're Happy and You Know It")

An equation must be balanced to be true,(clap, clap)

What you do to one side you must do to two,(clap, clap)

Use an inverse operation, it will bring you such elation,

And you'll find that this is all you have to do!(clap, clap)

Oh the inverse of adding is subtract,(clap, clap)

Yes the inverse of adding is subtract,(clap, clap)

So to undo addition, always use subtraction,

And you'll soon realize that it's a fact.(clap, clap)

Oh the inverse of multiply is divide,(clap, clap)

Yes the inverse of multiply is divide,(clap, clap)

So to undo multiplication, always use division,

And you'll feel an overwhelming sense of pride.(clap, clap)

Get the variable on one side by itself,(clap, clap)

Get the variable on one side by itself,(clap, clap)

Get the variable on one side, variable on one side,

Get the variable on one side by itself.(clap, clap)

An equation must be balanced to be true,(clap, clap)

What you do to one side you must do to two,(clap, clap)

Use an inverse operation, it will bring you such elation,

And you'll find that this is all you have to do!(clap, clap)
