Day 4 Simplify 1. 2. 3. Solve each equation 5. 6.

3.3 Equations with Variables on Both Sides Don’t forget to write this “I Can” in your target sheet. I can solve equations with variables on both sides. I can identify equations that are identities or have no solutions.

Guidelines for solving equations with variables on both sides: 1.Begin by looking to see if you can: a.Distributed to remove parentheses b.Clear any fractions c.Combine like terms 2. Get all your same variables on one side and all your numbers on the other by using inverse operations. 3. Remember: Your goal is to get ‘x’ by itself 3.3 Equations with Variables on Both Sides

Special Cases 1.No Solution – a solution where no value works * End with a false statement 2. Identity– a solution true for all values * End with a true statement

Ex. 1

Identity Ex. 2

No Solution Ex. 3

Determine whether each equation is an identity or whether it has no solution. No Solution Identity
