5. EXAMPLE 1 Using Mental Math to Solve Equations Solve the equation using mental math. Write these in your note book and solve them. SOLUTION To solve an equation using mental math, think of the equation as a question. a. 15 – n = 4 a. 15 minus what number equals 4 ? 15 – 11 = 4, so n = 11.
6. EXAMPLE 1 Using Mental Math to Solve Equations Solve the equation using mental math. Write these in your note book and solve them. SOLUTION To solve an equation using mental math, think of the equation as a question. b. 8 x = 32 b. 8 times what number equals 32 ? 8( 4 ) = 32, so x = 4.
7. EXAMPLE 1 Using Mental Math to Solve Equations Solve the equation using mental math. Write these in your note book and solve them. SOLUTION To solve an equation using mental math, think of the equation as a question. c. r 12 = 4 c. What number divided by 12 equals 4 ? 48 12 = 4, so r = 48.
8. GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 1, 2, and 3 Solve the equation using mental math. SOLUTION To solve an equation using mental math, think of the equation as a question. 1. 5 x = 45 5 times what number equals 45 ? 5(9) = 45, so x = 9.
9. GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 1, 2, and 3 Solve the equation using mental math. SOLUTION To solve an equation using mental math, think of the equation as a question. 16 plus what number equals 21 ? 16 + 5 = 21, so n = 5. 2. 16 + n = 21
10. GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 1, 2, and 3 Solve the equation using mental math. SOLUTION To solve an equation using mental math, think of the equation as a question. What number divided by 6 equals 9 ? 54 6 = 9, so r = 54. 3. t 6 = 9
11. GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 1, 2, and 3 SOLUTION Tell whether the value of the variable is a solution of the equation. y = 8 Substitute for y and then simplify. 4. 88 y = 8 11 8 ≠ 88 8 8 88 y = 8 No, 8 is not a solution. ANSWER
12. GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 1, 2, and 3 SOLUTION 16 = 16 Substitute for a and then simplify. a + 9 = 16 Tell whether the value of the variable is a solution of the equation. a = 7 ANSWER Yes, 16 is a solution. 7 + 9 16 5. a + 9 = 16
13. GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 1, 2, and 3 SOLUTION Tell whether the value of the variable is a solution of the equation. n = 2 Substitute for n and then simplify. 7 n = 13 6. 7 n = 13 7(2) 13 14 13 ≠ No, 2 is not a solution. ANSWER
