1 3.3 Solving Multi-Step Equations

2 A multi-step equation requires more than two steps to solve. To solve a multi-step equation: you may have to simplify the equation first by combining like terms.

3 Solve. 8x x – 2 = 37 Example: 11x + 4 = 37 Combine like terms. – 4 – 4 opposite and balance 11x = 33 x = 3 Since x is multiplied by 11, divide both sides by x 11 = Now check your solution!

4 Solve. -9x x – 2 = 44 Check It Out! Example -5x - 6 = 44 Combine like terms Since 6 is subtracted from -5x, add 6 to both sides. -5x = 50 x = -10 Since x is multiplied by -5, divide both sides by x -5 = Now check your solution!
