1 Variables on Both Sides of the Equation 3-6-1

2 Moving terms When a one step equation is solved, essentially the constants are sorted to one side of the equation and the variable to the other. When a one step equation is solved, essentially the constants are sorted to one side of the equation and the variable to the other. Think of this as “moving” the constant 8 to the other side of the equation. Think of this as “moving” the constant 8 to the other side of the equation.

3 Moving terms “Move” terms involving variables the same way. “Move” terms involving variables the same way. Either the 3x or the 5x could be moved. Either the 3x or the 5x could be moved. Choose the term containing the variable with the smaller coefficient. Choose the term containing the variable with the smaller coefficient. This doesn’t matter now, but will make things easier in other equations. This doesn’t matter now, but will make things easier in other equations. Now there is only a two step equation to solve. Now there is only a two step equation to solve.

4 Steps To solve equations with variables on both sides of the equal sign, To solve equations with variables on both sides of the equal sign, 1- Distribute. 1- Distribute. 2- Combine like terms. 2- Combine like terms. 3- Move all the variables to the same side. 3- Move all the variables to the same side. 4- Solve the two step equation. 4- Solve the two step equation. –Subtract or add –Divide. Every step isn’t needed in every equation. Every step isn’t needed in every equation.
