**Objective - To solve simple, one-step variable equations**

What is an equation? Equation - a balanced statement of equality between two quantities. 4 + 3 = 7 4 + 3 7 = fulcrum

2
4 + 3 7 = - 3 fulcrum

3
4 = 7 fulcrum

4
4 = 7 fulcrum

5
4 = 7 fulcrum

6
4 + 3 7 = - 3 - 3

7
**4 4 = Perform the same operation to both sides**

to keep the equation balanced.

8
**This property can be used to solve variable equations.**

x + 6 11 = -6 -6 x 5 = Algebraic Approach x + 6 = 11 x = 5

9
Solve. 1) m + 2 = 10 4) m - 4 = 9 m = 8 m = 13 2) x - 4 = 6 5) 11 = x - -2 x = 10 9 = x 3) x + 7 = 3 6) 8 + y = -6 x = -4 y = -14

10
Linear vs. Non-linear Linear Equations Non-linear Equations

11
**Rules for Solving Linear Equations**

1) Goal: Isolate the variable. 2) Undo operations with their opposite operation. 3) Always do the same thing to both sides of the equation.

12
Solve. 1) -4 + x = 15 4) - 4 = m + 9 x = 19 -13 = m 2) 7 = x + 13 5) = x 16 = x -6 = x 3) -10 = 6 + x 6) y = y = -5 -16 = x

13
Solve. 1) 5x = 35 3) 9 = -3m x = 7 -3 = m 2) 4) (-6) (-6) -72 = x

14
**Storyboard your Problem**

-4 + x = 15 x = 15 A number is 20 Add Add 4 Is

15
**-4k = 14 -4 -4 Acceptable Answers All answers must be fully reduced!**

All answers must be fully reduced! There is nothing improper about an improper fraction!

16
Solve. 1) 7x = 16 3) 9 = -m (-1)9 = -m(-1) -9 = m 2) 4) (-4) (-4) (-2) (-2) k = 16

17
**Solving Equations Involving Fractions**

Long Way Short Way Easier to multiply by the reciprocal!

18
Solve. 1) 3) 2) 4)
