1 Objective The student will be able to: solve equations using addition and subtraction.

2 1) Solve r + 16 = -7 Think of this equation as a balance scale. Whatever you do to one side has to be done to the other to keep it balanced!

3 1) Solve r + 16 = 27 To solve, you must get the variable by itself. What number is on the same side as r? 16 To get r by itself, we must undo the add 16. What is the opposite of addition? Subtract 16

4 - 16 -16 r = 11 11 + 16 = 27 1) Solve r + 16 = 27 1.Draw the river to separate the equation into 2 sides 2.Subtract 16 from both sides 3.Simplify vertically 4.Check your answer by substituting your answer back into the problem

5 2) Solve x + 2 = 8 Get the variable by itself. What is your first step? 1.Add 2 to both sides 2.Subtract 2 from both sides 3.Add 3 to both sides 4.Subtract 3 from both sides Answer Now

6 2) Solve x + 2 = 9 - 2 - 2 x = 7 7 + 2 = 9 1.Draw the river to separate the equation into 2 sides 2.Subtract 2 from both sides 3.Simplify vertically 4.Check your answer by substituting your answer back into the problem On homework and tests, be sure to check your work!! There is no reason why you should miss a problem!

7 3) Solve 8 = m+ 3 1.m = 3 2.m = 5 3.m = 24 4.m = 8/3 Answer Now

8 3) Solve 8 = m - 3 + 3+ 3 11= m 8 = 11 - 3 1.Draw the river to separate the equation into 2 sides 2.Add 3 to both sides 3.Simplify vertically 4.Check your answer by substituting your answer back into the problem

9 When solving equations, we want to eliminate double signs. y + (-3) = 8 is rewritten as y – 3 = 8 p – (-5) = 6 is rewritten as p + 5 = 6 As a general rule, replace + (- ) with – and – (- ) with +. This will make things less confusing in the future!

10 4) Solve y + (-3) = 7 y – 3 = 7 + 3 +3 y = 10 10 + (-3) = 7 1.Draw the river to separate the equation into 2 sides 2.Eliminate the double sign 3.Add 3 to both sides 4.Simplify vertically 5.Check your answer by substituting your answer back into the problem

11 5) Solve. -x - (-2) = 1 -x + 2 = 1 - 2 - 2 -x = -1 x = 1 -(1) + 2 = 1 1.Draw the river to separate the equation into 2 sides 2.Eliminate the double sign 3.Subtract 2 from both sides 4.Simplify vertically 5.We havent gotten x by itself. If we read this aloud, it is the opposite of x equals -1. What would x be equal? 6.Check your answer

12 Solve -y – (-3) = 7 1.y = 10 2.y = 4 3.y = -10 4.y = -4 Answer Now
