2-1 Solving One-Step Equations equation solution of an equation solution set Vocabulary

2-1 Solving One-Step Equations An equation is a mathematical statement that two expressions are equal. A solution of an equation is a value of the variable that makes the equation true. A solution set is the set of all solutions. Finding the solutions of an equation is also called solving the equation.

2-1 Solving One-Step Equations Inverse Operations Add x. Subtract x. Multiply by x. Divide by x. An equation is like a balanced scale. To keep the balance, you must perform the same inverse operation on both sides. To find solutions, perform inverse operations until you have isolated the variable. A variable is isolated when it appears by itself on one side of an equation, and not at all on the other side.

2-1 Solving One-Step Equations

2-1 Solving One-Step Equations Solution sets are written in set notation using braces, { }. Solutions may be given in set notation, or they may be given in the form x = 14. Writing Math

2-1 Solving One-Step Equations Solve the equation. Additional Example 1A: Solving Equations by Using Addition or Subtraction Since 8 is subtracted from y, add 8 to both sides to undo the subtraction. y – 8 = 24 + 8 + 8 y = 32 Check y – 8 = 24 32 – 8 24 24 To check your solution, substitute 32 for y in the original equation. The solution set is {32}.

Example 1b Since 6 is subtracted from k, add 6 to both sides to undo the subtraction. –6 = k – 6 + 6 + 6 0 = k Check –6 = k – 6 –6 0 – 6 –6 To check your solution, substitute 0 for k in the original equation. The solution set is {0}.

2-1 Solving One-Step Equations Solve the equation. Check your answer. Check It Out! Example 1c Since 6 is added to t, subtract 6 from both sides to undo the addition. 6 + t = 14 – 6 – 6 t = 8 Check 6 + t = 14 6 + 8 14 14 To check your solution, substitute 8 for t in the original equation. The solution set is {8}.
