1.3 “Solving Linear Equations” Steps: 1.Isolate the variable. 2.To solve when there is a fraction next to a variable, multiply both sides by the reciprocal. 3.Write answer completely.

Examples 2.4x + 9 = 213.7x – 41 = -13

Examples – Variables on Both Sides 4.4p + 15 = 7p – 35.8y – 16 = 13y + 9

Try These 8.2x – 3 = 6x + 25 9.-2x + 9 = 2x – 7

Examples – Multiple Steps 10. 3(x – 5) = – 2(– x + 7) – 12x11. – 4(2x + 5) = 2(– x – 9) – 4x

Special Cases 12. 7(x – 3) = 7x – 2113. 6(x – 5) = 6x + 30
