    Yes, so we get 2c+2L=p/v

    Multiply both sides by 1/2, in other words, divide both sides by 2 |dw:1379883445598:dw|

    Okay, so we divied everything by 1/2

    don't confuse the two statements. we multiply everything by 1/2, same as we divide everything by 2 :)

    alright, here's what. \(\huge 1-1=0 \) do you agree?

    alright, and do you know that, to move 1 to the other side of the equation, means to do this \(\huge 1-1+1=0+1 \) ?

    alright, then you know that, whatever you do to the left side of an equation, you do the same to the right... yeah?

    ah okay so that's y you put the 1/2 in.

    exactly, we put the half in initially to cancel out out the 2 in 2L, but once we multiply the left side by 1/2, we have to multiply the right side by 1/2 as well
