CONFIDENTIAL 1 Grade 8 Pre-Algebra Solving Equations with Variables on Both Sides

CONFIDENTIAL 2 Warm Up 1) 15y + 31 = 61 2) 9 - c = -13 3) x + 4= 15 6 4) y + 1 = 5 3 4 12 Solve each equation. Check your answer: 1) y = 2 2) c = 22 3) x = 66 4) y = 0.5

CONFIDENTIAL 3 Model Equations with Variables on Both Sides You can use algebra tiles to understand how to solve equations with variables on both sides. KEYREMEMBER = 1 = -1 = x + = 0 = -x

CONFIDENTIAL 4 Activity Use algebra tiles to model and solve 5x - 2 = 2x+ 10. MODELALGEBRA 5x - 2 = 2x + 10 5x - 2 - 2x = 2x - 2x + 10 3x - 2 = 10 Next page  Model 5x - 2 on the left side of the mat and 2x + 10 on the right side. Remember that 5x - 2 is the same as 5x + (-2). Remove 2 x-tiles from both sides. This represents subtracting 2x from both sides of the equation.

CONFIDENTIAL 5 MODELALGEBRA 3x - 2 + 2 = 10 + 2 3x = 12 3 3 x = 4 Use algebra tiles to model and solve the equation. 1.5x + 12 = 2x + 3 Remove Place 2 yellow tiles on both sides. This represents adding 2 to both sides of the equation. Remove zero pairs. Separate each side into 3 equal groups. Each group is 1/3 of the side. One x-tile is equivalent to 4 yellow tiles.

CONFIDENTIAL 6 To solve an equation with variables on both sides, use inverse operations to “collect” variable terms on one side of the equation. Solving Equations with Variables on Both Sides Solve each equation. a) 7k = 4k + 15 7k = 4k + 15 -4k 3k = 15 To collect the variable terms on one side, subtract 4k from both sides. Since k is multiplied by 3, divide both sides by 3 to undo the multiplication. 3k = 15 3 3 k = 5

CONFIDENTIAL 7 b) 5x - 2 = 3x + 4 5x - 2 = 3x + 4 - 3x -3x 2x - 2 = 4 To collect the variable terms on one side, subtract 3x from both sides. Check To check your solution, substitute 3 for x in the original equation. + 2 +2 2x = 6 Since 2 is subtracted from 2x, add 2 to both sides to undo the subtraction. 2x = 6 2 2 Since x is multiplied by 2, divide both sides by 2 to undo the multiplication. x = 3 5x - 2 = 3x + 4 5 (3) - 2 15 - 2 9 + 4 13 13 3 (3) + 4

CONFIDENTIAL 8 Now you try! 1) 4b + 2 = 3b 2) 0.5 + 0.3y = 0.7y - 0.3 Solve each equation. Check your answer. To solve more complicated equations, you may need to first simplify by using the Distributive Property or combining like terms. 1) b = -2 2) y = 2

CONFIDENTIAL 9 Simplifying Each Side Before Solving Equations Solve each equation. A) 2(y + 6) = 3y Distribute 2 to the expression in parentheses. 2y + 12 = 3y - 2y -2y 12 = y Check To check your solution, substitute 12 for y in the original equation. 2(y + 6) = 3y 2(y) + 2(6) = 3y To collect the variable terms on one side, subtract 2y from both sides. 2(y + 6) = 3y 2(12 + 6) 3(12) 2(18) 36 36

CONFIDENTIAL 10 B) 3 - 5b + 2b = -2 - 2(1 - b) Distribute -2 to the expression in parentheses. 3 = -4 + 5b +3b Since b is multiplied by 5, divide both sides by 5. 3 - 5b + 2b = -2 - 2(1 - b) 3 - 5b + 2b = -2 - 2(1) - 2(-b) 3 - 5b + 2b = -2 - 2 + 2b 3 - 3b = -4 + 2b Combine like terms. Add 3b to both sides. Since -4 is added to 5b, add 4 to both sides. +4 7 = 5b 5 1.4 = b

CONFIDENTIAL 11 Now you try! 1) 1 (b + 6) = 3b – 1 2 2 2) 3x + 15 - 9 = 2 (x + 2) Solve each equation. Check your answer. 1) b = 4 2) x = -2

CONFIDENTIAL 12 An identity is an equation that is true for all values of the variable. An equation that is an identity has infinitely many solutions. A contradiction is an equation that is not true for any value of the variable. It has no solutions. Identities and Contradictions WORDSNUMBERSALGEBRA Identity: When solving an equation, if you get an equation that is always true, the original equation is an identity, and it has infinitely many solutions. 2 + 1 = 2 + 1 3 = 3 2 + x = 2 + x - x 2 = 2 contradiction: When solving an equation, if you get a false equation, the original equation is a contradiction, and it has no solutions. 1 = 1 + 2 1 = 3 x = x + 3 - x 0 = 3

CONFIDENTIAL 13 Infinitely Many Solutions or No Solutions A) x + 4 - 6x = 6 - 5x - 2 Identify like terms. + 5x 4 = 4 Solve each equation. x + 4 - 6x = 6 - 5x - 2 4 - 5x = 4 - 5x Combine like terms on the left and the right. Add 5x to both sides. True statement The equation x + 4 - 6x = 6 - 5x - 2 is an identity. All values of x will make the equation true. All real numbers are solutions.

CONFIDENTIAL 14 A) -8x + 6 + 9x = -17 + x Identify like terms. - x 6 = -17 -8x + 6 + 9x = -17 + x 6 + x = -17 + x Combine like terms. Subtract x to both sides. False statement The equation -8x + 6 + 9x = -17 + x is a contradiction. There is no value of x that will make the equation true. There are no solutions.

CONFIDENTIAL 15 Now you try! 1) 4y + 7 - y = 10 + 3y 2) 2c + 7 + c = -14 + 3c + 21 Check each equation. 1) False statement 2) True statement

CONFIDENTIAL 16 When is 36¢ plus 3¢ per minute the same as 6¢ per minute ? Solution: 36 + 3m = 6m To collect the variable terms on one side, subtract 3m from both sides. Phone CompanyCharges Company A36¢ plus 3¢ per minute Company B6¢ per minute Let m represent minutes, and write expressions for each company’s cost. The long-distance rates of two phone companies are shown in the table. How long is a call that costs the same amount no matter which company is used? What is the cost of that call? - 3m 36 = 3m Next page 

CONFIDENTIAL 17 12 = m Since m is multiplied by 3, divide both sides by 3 to undo the multiplication. The charges will be the same for a 12-minute call using either phone service. To find the cost of this call, evaluate either expression for m = 12: The cost of a 12-minute call through either company is 72¢. 36 = 3m 3 3 36 + 3m = 36 + 3 (12) = 36 + 36 = 72 6m = 6 (12) = 72
