3 Pre-Algebra 10-3 Solving Equations with Variables on Both Sides Problem of the Day An equilateral triangle and a regular pentagon have the same perimeter. Each side of the pentagon is 3 inches shorter than each side of the triangle. What is the perimeter of the triangle? 22.5 in.

4 Pre-Algebra 10-3 Solving Equations with Variables on Both Sides Learn to solve equations with variables on both sides of the equal sign.

5 Pre-Algebra 10-3 Solving Equations with Variables on Both Sides Some problems produce equations that have variables on both sides of the equal sign. Solving an equation with variables on both sides is similar to solving an equation with a variable on only one side. You can add or subtract a term containing a variable on both sides of an equation.

11 Pre-Algebra 10-3 Solving Equations with Variables on Both Sides Solve. C. 3w + 1 = 10w + 8 – 7w 3w + 1 = 10w + 8 – 7w 1 ≠ 8 3w + 1 = 3w + 8Combine like terms. – 3w Subtract 3w from both sides. No solution. There is no number that can be substituted for the variable w to make the equation true. Try This: Example 1C

12 Pre-Algebra 10-3 Solving Equations with Variables on Both Sides To solve multistep equations with variables on both sides, first combine like terms and clear fractions. Then add or subtract variable terms to both sides so that the variable occurs on only one side of the equation. Then use properties of equality to isolate the variable.

19 Pre-Algebra 10-3 Solving Equations with Variables on Both Sides Additional Example 3: Consumer Application Jamie spends the same amount of money each morning. On Sunday, he bought a newspaper for $1.25 and also bought two doughnuts. On Monday, he bought a newspaper for fifty cents and bought five doughnuts. On Tuesday, he spent the same amount of money and bought just doughnuts. How many doughnuts did he buy on Tuesday?

20 Pre-Algebra 10-3 Solving Equations with Variables on Both Sides Additional Example 3 Continued First solve for the price of one doughnut d = d Let d represent the price of one doughnut. – 2d 1.25 = d Subtract 2d from both sides. – 0.50 Subtract 0.50 from both sides = 3d d3d 3 = Divide both sides by = d The price of one doughnut is $0.25.

21 Pre-Algebra 10-3 Solving Equations with Variables on Both Sides Additional Example 3 Continued Now find the amount of money Jamie spends each morning d Choose one of the original expressions. Jamie spends $1.75 each morning (0.25) = n = Let n represent the number of doughnuts. Find the number of doughnuts Jamie buys on Tuesday. 0.25n = 1.75 n = 7; Jamie bought 7 doughnuts on Tuesday. Divide both sides by 0.25.

22 Pre-Algebra 10-3 Solving Equations with Variables on Both Sides Try This: Example 3 Helene walks the same distance every day. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, she walks 2 laps on the track, and then walks 4 miles. On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, she walks 4 laps on the track and then walks 2 miles. On Saturdays, she just walks laps. How many laps does she walk on Saturdays?

23 Pre-Algebra 10-3 Solving Equations with Variables on Both Sides Try This: Example 3 Continued First solve for distance around the track. 2x + 4 = 4x + 2 Let x represent the distance around the track. – 2x 4 = 2x + 2 Subtract 2x from both sides. – 2 Subtract 2 from both sides. 2 = 2x 2 2 2x2x 2 = Divide both sides by 2. 1 = x The track is 1 mile around.
