Lesson 7-2 Warm-Up

“Solving Multi-Step Equations” (7-2)
What are the steps for solving a multi-step equation? Step 1: Clear the equation of fractions and decimals. You can clear decimals by using the decimal that has the most digits after it and moving all of the decimals that number of jumps to the right. Example: 0.5a = Since is the greatest number of place values from the end (3), jump all of the decimals 3 places to the right, so 0.5a = is the same as 500a = 13,250 Step 2: Use the Distributive Property to remove parenthesis if you can’t simplify the problem within them. Example: 4 (25) = 4 (20 + 5) = 4 • • 5 = = 100 Step 3: Combine like terms on each side. Examples: 4x + 5x = 9x 8a – 5a = 3a Step 4: “Undo” (since you’re working backwards) addition and subtraction. Examples: 2x + 5 – 5 = 10 – 5 – = Step 5: Undo multiplication and division. Examples: 2x = 10 • = t 4 4 1 t 4

Subtraction Property of Equality
Solving Multi-Step Equations LESSON 7-2 Additional Examples Example: Solve 2c c = 12. 2c c = 12 2c + 3c + 2 = 12 Commutative Property 5c + 2 = 12 Combine like terms 5c + 2 – 2 = 12 – 2 Subtraction Property of Equality 5c = 10 Simplify. 5c 5 10 = Isolate the variable. Use the Division Property of Equality. c = 2 Simplify. 2c c = 12 Check: 2(2) (2) 12 Substitute 2 for c. 12 = 12 The solution checks.

4s + 5 – 5 = 41 – 5 Subtract 5 from each side.
Solving Multi-Step Equations LESSON 7-2 Additional Examples In his stamp collection, Jorge has five more than three times as many stamps as Helen. Together they have 41 stamps. Solve the equation s + 3s + 5 = 41. Find the number of stamps each one has. s + 3s + 5 = 41 4s + 5 = Combine like terms. 4s + 5 – 5 = 41 – 5   Subtract 5 from each side. 4s = Simplify. = Divide each side by 4. 4s 4 36 s = Simplify.

Helen has 9 stamps. Jorge has 3(9) + 5 = 32 stamps.
Solving Multi-Step Equations LESSON 7-2 Additional Examples (continued) Helen has 9 stamps. Jorge has 3(9) + 5 = 32 stamps. Check:   Is the solution reasonable? Helen and Jorge have a total of 41 stamps. Since = 41, the solution is reasonable.

Example: Solve 2(3a + 6) + a = 110
Solving Multi-Step Equations LESSON 7-2 Additional Examples Example: Solve 2(3a + 6) + a = 110 6a a = Distributive Property  (3a + 6) = 2 • 3a + 2 • 6 6a + 1a + 12 = Commutative Property of Addition (Note: a = 1a  Identity Property) 7a + 12 = Combine like terms (3 + 1). Subtract 12 from each side. 7a = 98 Simplify. 1 14 = Divide each side by 7. 7a 7 98 7 1 1 a = 14 Simplify. 2(3a + 6) + a = 110 Check: 2(3 • ) Substitute 14 for a. 2(48) 110 = 110

Use the Distributive Property.
Solving Multi-Step Equations LESSON 7-2 Additional Examples Solve each equation. a. 4(2q – 7) = –4 4(2q – 7) = –4 8q – 28 = –4 Use the Distributive Property. 8q – = –4 + 28 Add 28 to each side. 8q = 24 Simplify. Divide each side by 8. = 8q 8 24 q = 3 Simplify.

Use the Distributive Property.
Solving Multi-Step Equations LESSON 7-2 Additional Examples (continued) b.    44 = –5(r – 4) – r 44 = –5(r – 4) – r 44 = –5r + 20 – r Use the Distributive Property. 44 = –5r – 1r + 20 Use the Commutative and Associative Properties of Addition to group like terms. 44 = –6r + 20 Combine like terms (r = 1r by the Identity Property). 44 – 20 = –6r + 20 – 20 Subtract 20 from each side. 24 = –6r Simplify. Divide each side by –6. = 24 –6 –6r –4 = r Simplify.

Solving Multi-Step Equations LESSON 7-2 Additional Examples (continued) n + (n + 1) + (n + 2) = Equation (n + n + n) + (1 + 2) = 96 Use the Commutative and Associative Properties of Addition to group like terms. 3n + 3 = 96 Combine like terms (n = 1n; 1n + 1n + 1n = 3n). 3n + 3 – 3 = 96 – 3   Subtract 3 from each side. 3n = 93 Simplify. = Divide each side by 3. 3n 3 96 n = 31 Simplify.

Check: Is the solution reasonable? Yes, because 31 + 32 + 33 = 96.
Solving Multi-Step Equations LESSON 7-2 Additional Examples (continued) If n = 31, then n + 1 = 32, and n + 2 = 33. The three integers are 13, 14, and 15. Check: Is the solution reasonable? Yes, because = 96.
