Holt CA Course Solving Equations Containing Fractions Warm Up in Spiral. Solve. 1. x – 16 = a = y + 21 = 31 x = 24 a = 5 x = 132 x 12 = 11 y = 10

3
Holt CA Course Solving Equations Containing Fractions AF1.1 Write and solve one-step linear equations in one variable. Also covered: NS2.1, NS2.2, NS2.4 California Standards

4
Holt CA Course Solving Equations Containing Fractions The goal when solving equations that contain fractions is the same as when working with other kinds of numbers—to get the variable by itself on one side of the equation.

5
Holt CA Course Solving Equations Containing Fractions Solve. Write the answer in simplest form. Additional Example 1A: Solving Equations by Adding or Subtracting x – 3737 = = = x= 8787 = Simplify Since is subtracted from x, 3737 add to both sides. Think: What is happening to x. How do I undo that?

Holt CA Course Solving Equations Containing Fractions Solve. Write the answer in simplest form. Additional Example 1B: Solving Equations by Adding or Subtracting t = t = 5 12 Find a common denominator. Subtract t –= 5 12 – t = – 9 24 t = 1 24 Since is added to t, subtract from both sides.

7
Holt CA Course Solving Equations Containing Fractions Solve. Write the answer in simplest form. Additional Example 1C: Solving Equations by Adding or Subtracting r = r = r – 4949 = 1212 – 4949 Find a common denominator. Subtract. r = 1 18 – r = Since is added to r, subtract from both sides.

8
Holt CA Course Solving Equations Containing Fractions Check. Additional Example 1C Continued r = 1212 = Find a common denominator. Add. You can check that a value is a solution to an equation by substituting the value for the variable. Substitute and solve. Is it correct? Helpful Hint Substitute for r = ? = ?
