3-4 Solving Equations with Variables on Both Sides Extension of AF4.1 Solve two-step linear equations and inequalities in one variable over the rational numbers, interpret the solution or solutions in the context from which they arose, and verify the reasonableness of the results. Also covered: AF1.1 California Standards

3-4 Solving Equations with Variables on Both Sides Solve. 4x + 6 = x Additional Example 1A: Solving Equations with Variables on Both Sides 4x + 6 = x – 4x 6 = –3x To collect the variable terms on one side, subtract 4x from both sides. Since x is multiplied by -3, divide both sides by –3. –2 = x 6 –3 –3x –3 =

3-4 Solving Equations with Variables on Both Sides Solve. 9b – 6 = 5b + 18 Additional Example 1B: Solving Equations with Variables on Both Sides 9b – 6 = 5b + 18 – 5b 4b – 6 = 18 4b4b = To collect the variable terms on one side, subtract 5b from both sides. Since b is multiplied by 4, divide both sides by 4. b = b = 24 Since 6 is subtracted from 4b, add 6 to both sides.

3-4 Solving Equations with Variables on Both Sides To solve more complicated equations, you may need to first simplify by combining like terms or clearing fractions. Then add or subtract to collect variable terms on one side of the equation. Finally, use properties of equality to isolate the variable.

3-4 Solving Equations with Variables on Both Sides Check It Out! Example 3 Marlas Gift Baskets sells a muffin basket for $22.00 plus $2.25 for every balloon. A competing service sells a similar muffin basket for $16.00 plus $3.00 for every balloon. Find the number of balloons that would make both baskets cost the same price. Marlas: c = b total cost is flat fee plus cost for each balloon Other: c = b Write an equation for each service. Let c represent the total cost and b represent the number of balloons.
