1 Equations with Variables on Both Sides With Special Guest Stars: The Distributive Property & Combining Like Terms

2 When you have an equation with variables on both sides, you get rid of one of them by adding or subtracting. Solve:4x + 4 = 2x + 36

3 Answer: x = 16 Now try this one: 7y = y

4 Answer: y = 3 For this next problem, you will need to use the Distributive Property first! 3(5a - 4) = 8a + 2

5 Answer: a = 2 Heres another one! x - (5 - 3x) = 7x + 4 careful!

6 Answer: x = -3 This time you will need to use the Distributive Property twice! 8(m - 5) = 2(3m - 8)

7 Answer: m = 12 This time, combine the like terms on each side of the equal sign before solving. 10x x = x

8 Answer: x = -8 For this problem: 1) Use the Distributive Property 2) Then, combine the like terms 2(10 - 6x) = x - 8x

9 Answer: x = 4 Remember: Distribute, then combine the like terms 6w + 3(5w - 4) = 12(2w - 5)

10 Answer: w = 16 Heres the last one! 4x + 5(7x - 3) = 9(x - 5)

11 Answer: x = -1
