Solving Equations Medina1 Variables on Both Sides

Steps to solve Medina2 4. Undo addition or subtraction You may not have to do all the steps to solve the equation “You know you are done solving when there is a positive 1 in front of the variable.” 5. Undo multiplication or division 1. Use distributive property on each side 2. Combine like terms on each side get the letter by itself variable 3. Get the variable on one side
