Linear Equations  Know your rules for solving equations  If fractions, multiply through by LCD  Distribute values to parentheses  What you do on one side of the equation you must do to the other side  The goal is to “isolate” the variable that you are solving for  Always check your results

SOLVE: Isolate x LCD: Multiply every value by the Least Common Denominator of 6 32 2

SOLVE: Isolate x DISTRIBUTE: Multiply 2 by everything inside the parentheses

SOLVE: Isolate x Add 2x to both sides Add 6 to both sides

SOLVE: Isolate x Divide 6 on both sides

CHECK: Plug in 3/2 for x to see if the left side equals the right side into the original equation
