**Solving Multi-Step Equations**

* Use two or more transformations to solve an equation

3
**What you do to one side you have to do to the other!!**

Remember solving an equation is a balancing act. What you do to one side you have to do to the other!!

4
**To solve you do the opposite:**

Steps for Solving…. Simplify one or both sides of the equation (if needed). Use inverse operations to isolate the variable. (DO THE OPPOSITE OF ORDER OF OPERATIONS) To simplify you use: To solve you do the opposite: P E M D A S S A D M E P
