## One-Step Equations Containing Decimals

After defining one–step equations and learning how to solve those if they contained integers, now let us learn how to **solve one–step equations containing decimals**. The rules for solving one–step equations containing integers still hold true for one–step equations involving decimals. Likewise, the underlying objective is to separate the variable and the constant part, by placing the variable on the left side and the constant on the right side of the equation. This can be done by doing the opposite of whatever operation is involved in the original equation or by performing the inverse of what is being done to the variable. Since decimals are involved, please note the rules for performing operations with decimals.
