Evaluating Algebraic Expressions 3-3Solving Multi-Step Equations A multi-step equation requires more than two steps to solve. To solve a multi-step equation, you may have to simplify the equation first by combining like terms.

Evaluating Algebraic Expressions 3-3Solving Multi-Step Equations Check It Out! Example 3 Penelopes average speed is her total distance for the two days divided by the total time. average speed = Total distance Total time On Saturday, Penelope rode her scooter m miles in 3 hours. On Sunday, she rides twice as far in 7 hours. If her average speed for two days is 20 mi/h, how far did she ride on Saturday? Round your answer to the nearest tenth of a mile.

Evaluating Algebraic Expressions 3-3Solving Multi-Step Equations Check It Out! Example 3 Continued Multiply both sides by 10. Substitute m + 2m for total distance and for total time = 20 m + 2m 10 = 20 3m Simplify. 10 = 10(20) 10 3m 3m = 200 Penelope rode approximately 66.7 miles. Divide both sides by 3. m m33m3 =
