1
Solving Word Problems w/ Algebra

2
Algebra To solve for a variable you must isolate the variable by using the “inverse” operation on both sides (what do to one side you must do to the other) Ask yourself “How do I make something zero”

3
You must make both sides of the equation equal. Example: e + 3 = 14 e +3 -3 = 14 -3 (Inverse operation) e = 11

4
Example For an equation using addition, what is the inverse operation. t + 4 = 17 t +4 -4 = 17 -4 t = 13

5
For equations using subtraction, what is the inverse operation? u -8 = 2 U – 8 +8 = 2 + 8 Addition undoes subtraction, and subtraction undoes addition. They are INVERSE operations

6
Isolate To use inverse operations on both sides of an equation so the variable is by itself on one side

7
OperationInverse Operation AdditionSubtraction subtractionaddition MultiplicationDivision Multiplication Dani says that the equation j + 7 = 12 and 7 + j =12 cannot be solved the same way. What would you say?

8
Example Solve h- 25 = -11 Step 1: What is the operation of the equation? Step 2: Inverse operation? Step 3: Isolate Step 4: Simplify

9
Solve d ◦ 11 = 99 What operation is being used?

10
12n =48

11
What is Order of Operations?

12
Two-Step Algebraic Equations In two step equations, you will be doing 2 different inverse operations. First, focus on the operations that does not involve the variable. Example: 8v+5 = 13 8v +5 -5 =13 -5

13
Second, focus on the operation that is associated with the variable. Example: 8v = 8 What is the inverse operation? 8v ÷ 8 = 8 ÷ 8 v = 1

14
Solve 5q -50 = 25

15
(g-8) / 5 = -13

16
s/4 + 3 = 9
