5 Additional Example 1: Using Inverse Operations to Group Terms with Variables Group the terms with variables on one side of the equal sign, and simplify.A. 60 – 4y = 8y60 – 4y = 8y60 – 4y + 4y = 8y + 4yAdd 4y to both sides.60 = 12ySimplify.B. –5b + 72 = –2b–5b + 72 = –2b–5b + 5b + 72 = –2b + 5bAdd 5b to both sides.72 = 3bSimplify.
6 Check It Out: Example 1Group the terms with variables on one side of the equal sign, and simplify.A. 40 – 2y = 6y40 – 2y = 6y40 – 2y + 2y = 6y + 2yAdd 2y to both sides.40 = 8ySimplify.B. –8b + 24 = –5b–8b + 24 = –5b–8b + 8b + 24 = –5b + 8bAdd 8b to both sides.24 = 3bSimplify.
7 Additional Example 2A: Solving Equations with Variables on Both Sides Solve.7c = 2c + 557c = 2c + 557c – 2c = 2c – 2c + 55Subtract 2c from both sides.5c = 55Simplify.5c = 555Divide both sides by 5.c = 11
8 Additional Example 2B: Solving Equations with Variables on Both Sides Solve.49 – 3m = 4m + 1449 – 3m = 4m + 1449 – 3m + 3m = 4m + 3m + 14Add 3m to both sides.49 = 7m + 14Simplify.49 – 14 = 7m + 14 – 14Subtract 14 fromboth sides.35 = 7m35 = 7m7Divide both sides by 7.5 = m
9 Additional Example 2C: Solving Equations with Variables on Both Sides Solve.25x =1x– 122515x =x– 1225x15–=1– 1215Subtractx from bothsides.15x–12=Simplify.15(5)x=(5)(–12)Multiply both sides by 5.x = –60
10 Check It Out: Example 2ASolve.8f = 3f + 658f = 3f + 658f – 3f = 3f – 3f + 65Subtract 3f from both sides.5f = 65Simplify.5f = 655Divide both sides by 5.f = 13
11 Check It Out: Example 2BSolve.54 – 3q = 6q + 954 – 3q = 6q + 954 – 3q + 3q = 6q + 3q + 9Add 3q to both sides.54 = 9q + 9Simplify.54 – 9 = 9q + 9 – 9Subtract 9 from both sides.45 = 9q45 = 9q9Divide both sides by 9.5 = q
12 Check It Out: Example 2CSolve.23w =1w– 92313w =w– 91323w13–=1– 9Subtractw from bothsides.13w–9=Simplify.13(3)w=(3)(–9)Multiply both sides by 3.w = –27
13 Additional Example 3: Consumer Math Application Christine can buy a new snowboard for $ She will still need to rent boots for $8.50 a day. She can rent a snowboard and boots for $18.25 a day. How many days would Christine need to rent both the snowboard and the boots to pay as much as she would if she buys the snowboard and rents only the boots for the season?
14 Additional Example 3 Continued Let d represent the number of days.18.25d = dSubtract 8.5dfrom both sides.18.25d – 8.5d = d – 8.5d9.75d = 136.5Simplify.9.75d = 136.5Divide both sides by 18.104.22.1689.75d = 14Christine would need to rent both the snowboard and the boots for 14 days to pay as much as she would have if she had bought the snowboard and rented only the boots.
15 Check It Out: Example 3A local telephone company charges $40 per month for services plus a fee of $0.10 a minute for long distance calls. Another company charges $75.00 a month for unlimited service. How many minutes does it take for a person who subscribes to the first plan to pay as much as a person who subscribes to the unlimited plan?
16 Check It Out: Example 3 Continued Let m represent the number of minutes.75 = mSubtract 40from both sides.75 – 40 = 40 – m35 = 0.10mSimplify.m0.10=Divide both sides by 0.10.350 = mA person who subscribes to the first plan would have to use 350 minutes to pay as much as a person who subscribes to the unlimited plan.
