Sec 2.1 - 5 2.1 Using Linear Equations of One Variable Algebraic Expressions vs. Equations In the previous chapter, we looked at algebraic expressions: – 9y + 5, 10k, and Equations are statements that two algebraic expressions are equal: 3x – 13 = 29, 2 + y = – 11, and 3m = 4m – 2 An equation always contains an equals sign, but an expression does not.

Sec 2.1 - 6 2.1 Using Linear Equations of One Variable Linear Equations in One Variable Linear Equation in One Variable A linear equation is also called a first-degree equation since the greatest power on the variable is one. 5x + 10 = 13 A linear equation in one variable can be written in the form Ax + B = C where A, B, and C are real numbers, with A = 0. /

Sec 2.1 - 8 2.1 Using Linear Equations of One Variable Deciding Whether a Number is a Solution If a variable can be replaced by a real number that makes the equation a true statement, then that number is a solution of the equation, x – 10 = 3. x – 10 = 3 13 13 – 10 = 3 x – 10 = 3 8 8 – 10 = 3 (true) (false) 13 is a solution 8 is not a solution

Sec 2.1 - 9 2.1 Using Linear Equations of One Variable Finding the Solution Set of an Equation An equation is solved by finding its solution set – the set of all solutions. The solution set of x – 10 = 3 is {13}. Equivalent equations are equations that have the same solution set. These are equivalent equations since they all have solution set {–3}. 3x + 5 = –43x = –9 x = –3

Sec 2.1 - 14 2.1 Using Linear Equations of One Variable Addition and Multiplication Properties of Equality Because subtraction and division are defined in terms of addition and multiplication, we can extend the addition and multiplication properties of equality as follows: The same number may be subtracted from each side of an equation, and each side of an equation may be divided by the same nonzero number, without changing the solution set.

Eliminate any fractions by multiplying each side by the least common denominator. Step 2Simplify each side separately. Use the distributive property to clear parentheses and combine like terms as needed. Step 3Isolate the variable terms on one side. Use the addition property to get all terms with variables on one side of the equation and all numbers on the other. Step 4Isolate the variable. Use the multiplication property to get an equation with just the variable (with coefficient of 1) on one side. Step 5Check. Substitute the proposed solution into the original equation.

Sec 2.1 - 28 2.1 Using Linear Equations of One Variable Conditional, Contradiction, and Identity Equations A contradiction has no solutions. Since 0 = –5 is never true, and this equation is equivalent to x + 7 = x + 2, the solution set is empty.

Sec 2.1 - 29 2.1 Using Linear Equations of One Variable Conditional, Contradiction, and Identity Equations An identity has an infinite number of solutions. Since 0 = 0 is always true, and this equation is equivalent to 2x + 2 = 2(x + 1), the solution set is all real numbers.
