Students learn how to solve linear equations involving fractions where the unknown is part of the denominator.

Later, as learning progresses they apply this skill to set up equations from algebraic ratios.

**Differentiated Learning Objectives**

- All students should be able to solve an equation with the unknown on one side of an algebraic fraction.
- Most students should be able to solve an equation with the unknown on both sides of an algebraic fraction.
- Some students should be able to set up and solve equations arising from algebraic ratios.
