Main Idea/Vocabulary

Equations with Variables on Each Side
Solve 7x + 4 = 9x. Check your solution. Write the equation. Subtract 7x from each side. Simplify by combining like terms. Mentally divide each side by 2. To check your solution, replace x with 2 in the original equation. Check Write the equation. ? Replace x with 2. The sentence is true. Answer: The solution is 2. Example 1

Solve 3x + 6 = x. Check your solution.
A. –5 B. –3 C. –1 D. 1 A B C D Example 1

Equations with Variables on Each Side
Solve 3x – 2 = 8x Check your solution. Write the equation. Subtract 8x from each side. Simplify. Add 2 to each side. Simplify. Mentally divide each side by –5. To check your solution, replace x with –3 in the original equation. Example 2

Equations with Variables on Each Side
Check 3x – 2 = 8x + 13 Write the equation. 3(–3) – 2 = 8(–3) + 13 Replace x with –3. – 11 = –11 The sentence is true. Answer: The solution is –3. Example 2

Solve 4x – 3 = 5x + 7. A. –4 B. –7 C. –10 D. –12 A B C D Example 2

Variable Let x and 90 – x represent the measure of the angles.
MEASUREMENT The measure of an angle is 8 degrees more than its complement. If x represents the measure of the angle and 90 – x represents the measure of its complement, what is the measure of the angle? Words The measure of an angle equals the measure of its complement plus 8. Variable Let x and 90 – x represent the measure of the angles. Equation x = 90 – x + 8 Example 3

x = 90 – x + 8 Write the equation. x = 98 – x Simplify.
x + x = 98 – x + x Add x to each side. 2x = 98 Divide each side by 2. x = 49 Answer: The measure of the angle is 49 degrees. Example 3

MEASUREMENT The measure of an angle is 12 degrees less than its complement. If x represents the measure of the angle and 90 – x represents the measure of its complement, what is the measure of the angle? A. 39 degrees B. 42 degrees C. 47 degrees D. 51 degrees A B C D Example 3
