3.3 – Solving Equations - One Variable Suggestions for Solving Linear Equations: 1. If parentheses exist, used the distributive property to remove them. 2. Simplify each side of the equation by combining like-terms. 3. Get the variable of interest to one side of the equation and all remaining terms to the other side. 4. Use the appropriate properties to get the variable’s coefficient to be 1. 5. Check the solution by substituting it into the original equation.
