A1.c How do I Solve Equations In One Variable, Including Equations Involving Absolute Values? Course 3 Warm Up Problem of the Day Lesson Presentation

Problem of the Day x is an odd integer. If you triple x and then subtract 7, you get a prime number. What is the smallest possible x? (Hint: What is the smallest prime number?) x = 3

Learn to solve two-step equations.

Sometimes more than one inverse operation is needed to solve an equation. Before solving, ask yourself, “What is being done to the variable, and in what order?” Then work backward to undo the operations.

Example 1: Solving Two-Step Equations
Solve - 5n - 7 = 28 ***Work backwards to isolate the variable Think: First the variable is multiplied by -5, and then 7 is subtracted. To isolate the variable, add 7, and then divide by -5. -5n – = Add 7 to both sides. -5n = 35 Divide both sides by -5. n = -7

Example 2 : Solving Two-Step Equations
Solve = 22 ***Work backwards to isolate the variable. Think: First the variable is divided by 3, and then 7 is added. To isolate the variable, subtract 7, and then multiply by 3. + 7 – 7 = 22 – 7 n 3 Subtract 7 from both sides. 3  = 3  15 n3 Multiply both sides by 3. n = 45

Check It Out: Example 2 n4 Solve = 18 ***Work backwards to isolate the variable. Think: First the variable is divided by 4, and then 8 is added. To isolate the variable, subtract 8, and then multiply by 4. + 8 – 8 = 18 – 8 n 4 Subtract 8 from both sides. 4  = 4  10 n4 Multiply both sides by 4. n = 40

Example 3: Solving Two-Step Equations
y – 4 3 Solve = 9 ***Multiply both sides of the equation by the denominator. = 9 y – 4 3 = 9 y – 4 3 (3) (3) Multiply both sides by the denominator. y – 4 = 27 Add to undo subtraction. y = 31

Check It Out: Example 3 y – 7 2 Solve = 7 ***Multiply both sides of the equation by the denominator. = 7 y – 7 2 = 7 y – 7 2 (2) (2) Multiply both sides by the denominator. y – 7 = 14 Add to undo subtraction. y = 21

Example 4: Problem Solving Application
The mechanic’s bill to repair Mr. Wong’s car was \$650. The mechanic charges \$45 an hour for labor, and the parts that were used cost \$443. How many hours did the mechanic work on the car?

Understand the Problem
Example 4 Continued 1 Understand the Problem List the important information: The answer is the number of hours the mechanic worked on the car. The parts cost \$443. The labor cost \$45 per hour. The total bill was \$650. Let h represent the hours the mechanic worked. Total bill = Parts + Labor = h

Example 4 Continued 2 Make a Plan Think: First the variable is multiplied by 45, and then 443 is added to the result. Work backward to solve the equation. Undo the operations in reverse order: First subtract 443 from both sides of the equation, and then divide both sides of the new equation by 45.

Example 4 Continued Solve 3 650 = h –443 –443 Subtract to undo the addition. 207 = h h = Divide to undo multiplication. 4.6 = h The mechanic worked for 4.6 hours on Mr. Wong’s car.

Example 4 Continued Look Back 4 You can use a table to decide whether your answer is reasonable. Hours Labor Parts Total Cost 1 45 \$443 \$488 2 90 \$533 3 135 \$578 4 180 \$623 5 225 \$668 4.6 hours is a reasonable answer.

Check It Out: Example 4 The mechanic’s bill to repair your car was \$850. The mechanic charges \$35 an hour for labor, and the parts that were used cost \$275. How many hours did the mechanic work on your car?

Understand the Problem
Check It Out: Example 4 Continued 1 Understand the Problem List the important information: The answer is the number of hours the mechanic worked on your car. The parts cost \$275. The labor cost \$35 per hour. The total bill was \$850. Let h represent the hours the mechanic worked. Total bill = Parts + Labor 850 = h

Check It Out: Example 4 Continued
2 Make a Plan Think: First the variable is multiplied by 35, and then 275 is added to the result. Work backward to solve the equation. Undo the operations in reverse order: First subtract 275 from both sides of the equation, and then divide both sides of the new equation by 35.

Check It Out: Example 4 Continued
Solve 3 850 = h –275 –275 Subtract to undo the addition. 575 = h h = Divide to undo multiplication. 16.4  h The mechanic worked for about 16.4 hours on your car.
