Two-Step Equations are actually one-step equations done twice.
If you can solve one-step addition or subtractions equations and one-step division equations, then you can solve two-step division equations.

2/3b - 7 = 15

- 7 = - 7

2 / 3 b = 8

3 / 2 x 2 / 3 b = 8 x 3 / 2

b = 8 x 3 / 2

b = 12

m / 3 - 5 = 22

+ 5 = + 5

m / 3 = 27

3 x m / 3 = 27 x 3

m = 27 x 3

m = 81

First: Add or Subtract from both sides so that the Coefficent and Variable are alone.

Second: Multiply both sides by the coefficent.

Finally: Solve the problem
