**3.1 Solving Linear Equations Part I**

A linear equation in one variable can be written in the form: Ax + B = 0 Linear equations are solved by getting “x” by itself on one side of the equation Addition (Subtraction) Property of Equality:

**3.1 Solving Linear Equations Part I**

Multiplication Property of Equality: Since division is the same as multiplying by the reciprocal, you can also divide each side by a number. General rule: Whatever you do to one side of the equation, you have to do the same thing to the other side.

3
**3.1 Solving Linear Equations Part I**

Example: Solve by getting x by itself on one side of the equation. Subtract 7 from both sides: Divide both sides by 3:

**3.2 Solving Linear Equations Part II - Fractions/Decimals**

As with expressions, you need to combine like terms and use the distributive property in equations. Example:

5
**3.2 Solving Linear Equations Part II - Fractions/Decimals**

Fractions - Multiply each term on both sides by the Least Common Denominator (in this case the LCD = 4): Multiply by 4: Reduce Fractions: Subtract x: Subtract 5:

6
**3.2 Solving Linear Equations Part II - Fractions/Decimals**

Decimals - Multiply each term on both sides by the smallest power of 10 that gets rid of all the decimals Multiply by 100: Cancel: Distribute: Subtract 5x: Subtract 50: Divide by 5:

**3.2 Solving Linear Equations Part II - Fractions/Decimals**

Eliminating fractions makes the calculation simpler: Multiply by 94: Cancel: Distribute: Subtract x: Subtract 10:

8
**3.2 Solving Linear Equations Part II**

1 – Multiply on both sides to get rid of fractions/decimals 2 – Use the distributive property 3 – Combine like terms 4 – Put variables on one side, numbers on the other by adding/subtracting on both sides 5 – Get “x” by itself on one side by multiplying or dividing on both sides 6 – Check your answers (if you have time)

**3.3 Applications of Linear Equations to General Problems**

1 – Decide what you are asked to find 2 – Write down any other pertinent information (use other variables, draw figures or diagrams ) 3 – Translate the problem into an equation. 4 – Solve the equation. 5 – Answer the question posed. 6 – Check the solution.

**3.4 Percent Increase/Decrease and Investment Problems**

A flash drive is on sale for $12 after a 20% discount. What was the original price of the flash drive?

16
**3.4 Percent Increase/Decrease and Investment Problems**

Another Way: A flash drive is on sale for $12 after a 20% discount. What was the original price of the flash drive? Since $12 was on sale for 20% off, it is 100% - 20% = 80% of the original price set up as a proportion (see 3.6):

**3.4 Percent Increase/Decrease and Investment Problems**

Simple Interest Formula: I = interest P = principal R = rate of interest per year T = time in years

**3.7 Solving Linear Inequalities in One Variable**

< means “is less than” means “is less than or equal to” > means “is greater than” means “is greater than or equal to” note: the symbol always points to the smaller number

31
**3.7 Solving Linear Inequalities in One Variable**

A linear inequality in one variable can be written in the form: ax < b (a0) Addition property of inequality: if a < b then a + c < b + c

32
**3.7 Solving Linear Inequalities in One Variable**

Multiplication property of inequality: If c > 0 then a < b and ac < bc are equivalent If c < 0 then a < b and ac > bc are equivalent note: the sign of the inequality is reversed when multiplying both sides by a negative number
