1
Solve an equation using subtraction EXAMPLE 1 Solve x + 7 = 4. x + 7 = 4x + 7 = 4 Write original equation. x + 7 – 7 = 4 – 7 Use subtraction property of equality: Subtract 7 from each side. x = –3x = –3 Simplify. ANSWER The solution is –3.

2
Solve an equation using subtraction EXAMPLE 1 CHECK Substitute –3 for x in the original equation. x + 7 = 4x + 7 = 4 Write original equation. –3 + 7 = 4 ? Substitute – 3 for x. 4 = 44 = 4 Simplify. Solution checks.

3
Solve an equation using addition EXAMPLE 2 Solve x – 12 = 3. Horizontal format Vertical format x – 12 = 3 Write original equation. x – 12 = 3 Add 12 to each side. + 12 x = 15 Simplify. x = 15 x – 12 + 12 = 3 + 12

4
Solve an equation using division EXAMPLE 3 Solve –6x = 48. –6x = 48 x = –8 Write original equation. –6x –6 48 –6 = Divide each side by –6. Simplify.
