A sentence which contains one or more variables such that its
truth (being true or false) can not be determined is called an
open sentence.
Example :
x 7 15
A variable is a symbol that can be replaced with an arbitrary
number.
From the example, X is a variable.
The subtitute for a variable which makes an open sentence a
true sentence is called a solution.
From the example, if x is replaced with 8, the sentence will be true.
Thus, its solution is
x 8
3.
A linear equation in one variable is an
equation that can be written in the form
ax + b = 0
Where a
0
For example:
2x + 6 = 0
4.
To solve an equation means to find all
values that make the equation a true
statement.
Such values are called
solutions, and the set of all solutions is
called the solution set.

Solving Equations by Using Addition and Subtraction
Objectives:
• * To solve linear equations using addition and
subtraction
• * To use linear equations to solve word problems
involving real-world situations
• Your goal is to isolate the variable and keep sides
balanced
• Watch integer signs and remember the rules
• Fraction and decimal rules still apply
6.
To solve equations like x 3 6 , you can use mental
math.
Ask yourself, “What number minus 3 is equivalent to 6?”
x
This strategy can work for easier problems, but we need a
better plan so we can solve more difficult problems.
In this strategy, we balance the sides of the equation as we
solve for the variable.
First, we must “undo” the minus 3. The inverse
(opposite) of subtracting 3 is _________________ 3.
x 3 6
x
3
3
x 9
6
3
But we have to be fair! If we are going to add 3
to one side of the equation, we MUST add 3 to
the other side to BALANCE the equation.
7.
• RULE: Subtract the same amount from
each side of the equation to keep the
equation balanced
• Algebraic symbols: for any numbers a,
b, and c, if a=b, then a-c= b-c
8.
Solving Linear Equations Using Subtraction
The process for solving equations using subtraction is very
similar to solving equations using addition.
How do you undo addition?
x 2 5
Example:
5 -2
x 2 -2
x 3
Ex1) x 7
9
First, we must “undo” the plus 2. The inverse
(opposite) of adding 2 is ______________ 2.
But we have to be fair! If we are going to subtract
2 from one side of the equation, we MUST
subtract 2 from the other side to BALANCE the
equation.
Ex2) x 15

9.
In some problems, you will see a negative sign in front
of the variable you are solving for.
Example:
x 12
x = -12
x 12
What does this mean?
The negative sign means “the opposite of x,”
meaning the opposite sign, positive or negative.
To solve, we change the sign of the other side of the equation.

• Focus: How can equations be used to find
how long it takes light to reach Earth?
• What is the unknown quantity in the
equation given in the example?
• What variable represents the unknown
quantity in the equation?
• What do you need to accomplish to solve
this equation?
11.
To solve multiplication and division equations
• REMEMBER: Your goal is to isolate the
variable!
• Multiplication Property: Multiply each
side of the equation by the same number
to keep the equation balanced
• Division Property: Divide both sides of
the equation by the same number to keep
the equation balanced

Objectives: To use 2 or more steps to solve a linear equation and to use
multi-step equations to solve word problems
You will be asked to solve problems like 3x 1 7
which require more than one step to solve.
Guidelines for Solving Multi-Step Equations:
1) Simplify both sides if necessary distribute & combine like terms
2) To solve you must undo the order of operations BACKWARDS!
Start with Undo add or subtract
Then Undo multiplication and division

Applying equations in everyday life
To solve problems encountered in daily life, especially
word problems, the following steps can help make
finding the solution easier.
If you feel the need for a diagram or a sketch, e.g.,
for a problem related to geometry, make a diagram
or a sketch based on the story.
Translating the story into a mathematical sentence
or mathematical model in the form the equations.

Ex) The bill (parts and labor) for the repair of a car was $400.
The cost of parts was $125, and the labor cost was $50 per hour.
Write and solve and equation to find the number of hours of labor.
Can you solve multi-step equations? How do you know what
operation to undo first?
24.
The bill (parts and labor) = $ 400.
Cost of parts
= $ 125.
Cost of labor per hour = $ 50.
Let X is the number of hours of labor.
The equation is 400 125 50 x
So, the number of hours of
labor = 5.5 hours.

What’s a linear inequality in one variable?
A linear inequality is an open sentence which has
the relation of ≥, >, ≤, or < and whose variable has an
exponent of 1.
A linear inequality which has one variable is called
a linear inequality in one variable (LIOV).
The general form of a LIOV: ax b...0
