1
Solving one- and two-step equations

2
Solving One-Step Equations using Additive Inverse Steps Given the equation x + 4 = 9 use the inverse of adding 4 to both sides of the equation to isolate the x. (In other words, subtract 4 from each side to get x by itself.) Given the equation x – 7 = 5 use the inverse of subtracting 7 to both sides. (In other words, add 7 to both sides) Equations X + 4 = 9 -4 -4 x = 5 x – 7 = 5 +7 +7 x = 12

3
Solving One-Step Equations using the Multiplicative Inverse Steps Given the equation 3x +4 = 9 use the inverse of multiplying 3 to both sides of the equation to isolate the x. (In other words, divide 3 from each side to get x by itself.) Given the equation x /7 = 5 use the inverse of dividing by 7 to both sides. (In other words, multipy both sides by 7) Equations 3x = 9 3x/3 = 9/3 x = 3 x /7 = 5 x/7(7) = 5(7) x = 35

4
Solving Two-Step Equations Steps Given the equation 7x + 5 = 26 1.use the inverse of adding 5 to both sides of the equation to isolate the x. 2.Use the inverse of multiplying by 7 on both sides. Equations 7x + 5 = 26 -5 -5 Step 1 7 x = 21 7x/7 = 21/7 Step 2 x = 3

5
Solving Two-Step Equations Steps Given the equation x/12- 5 = -1 1.use the inverse of subtracting 5 to both sides of the equation to isolate the x. 2.Use the inverse of dividing by 12 on both sides. Equations x/12 - 5 = -1 +5 +5 Step 1 x/12 = 4 x/12(12) = 4(12) Step 2 x = 48

6
Solving Equations with the variable on both sides Steps Given the equation 4x + 10 = 2x + 20 1.Subtract 2x from both sides to get the terms with x on one side of the equation. 2.Subtract 10 from both sides to get numerical terms on the other side. 3.Divide both sides by 2. Equation 4x + 10 = 2x +20 -2x -2xStep 1 2x + 10 = 20 -10 -10Step 2 2x = 10 2x/2 = 10/2 Step 3 X = 5

7
Checking your solution Steps You can check your solution by substituting the value back into your original equation. Equation X + 4 = 9 -4 -4 x = 5 Check: X + 4 = 9 5 + 4 = 9

8
Checking your solution Steps You can check your solution by substituting the value back into your original equation. Equation 7x + 5 = 26 -5 -5 Step 1 7 x = 21 7x/7 = 21/7 Step 2 x = 3 Check: 7x + 5 = 26 7(3) + 5 = 26

9
Checking your solution Steps You can check your solution by substituting the value back into your original equation. Equation 4x + 10 = 2x +20 -2x -2xStep 1 2x + 10 = 20 -10 -10Step 2 2x = 10 2x/2 = 10/2 Step 3 X = 5 Check: 4x + 10 = 2x +20 4(5) + 10 = 2(5) + 20 20 + 10 = 10 + 20 30 = 30
