2-7 Solving Equations with Rational Numbers Learn to solve equations with rational numbers.

2-7 Solving Equations with Rational Numbers m + 4.6 = 9 Use the Subtraction Property of Equality. Subtract 4.6 from both sides. Once you have solved an equation it is a good idea to check your answer. To check your answer, substitute your answer for the variable in the original equation. Remember! Additional Examples 1A: Solving Equations with Decimals Solve. 4.4 m = – 4.6 =

2-7 Solving Equations with Rational Numbers 8.2p = –32.8 –4 p = Use the Division Property of Equality. Divide both sides by 8.2 –32.8 8.2 8.2p 8.2 = Additional Examples 1B: Solving Equations with Decimals Solve.

2-7 Solving Equations with Rational Numbers Additional Examples 1C: Solving Equations with Decimals x = 18 Use the Multiplication Property of Equality. Multiply both sides by 1.2 = 15 x 1.2 = 1.2 15 1.2 Solve.

2-7 Solving Equations with Rational Numbers m + 9.1 = 3 Use the Subtraction Property of Equality. Subtract 9.1 from both sides. Check It Out: Example 1A & 1B –6.1 m = –9.1 = Solve. A. B. 5.5b = 75.9 75.9 5.55.5 = b 13.8 b = Use the Division Property of Equality. Divide both sides by 5.5
