  • Unit 3 hw 7 - literal equations

    1. 1. Solving Literal Equations
    2. 2. Solving equations with more than 1 variable(Literal Equations) Sometimes equations have more than one variable. Such as 2x - y = 5 or ab + c = d or A = bh Solving for a specific variable requires the exact same steps as solving for equations with one variable. The only difference is rarely do terms disappear. The just move to the opposite side.
    3. 3. Solve for a:ab + c = d
    4. 4. Solve for a: Identify the term with the variableab + c = d for which you are solving.
    5. 5. Solve for a: Identify the term with the variableab + c = d for which you are solving.
    6. 6. Solve for a: Identify the term with the variableab + c = d for which you are solving. Move terms outside the circle to the opposite side.
    7. 7. Solve for a: Identify the term with the variableab + c = d for which you are solving. −c −c Move terms outside the circle to the opposite side.
    8. 8. Solve for a: Identify the term with the variableab + c = d for which you are solving. −c −c Move terms outside the circle to the opposite side. Only like terms can be added or subtracted. Write both terms because they are not alike.
    9. 9. Solve for a: Identify the term with the variableab + c = d for which you are solving. −c −c Move terms outside the circle to the opposite side.ab = d − c Only like terms can be added or subtracted. Write both terms because they are not alike.
    10. 10. Solve for a: Identify the term with the variableab + c = d for which you are solving. −c −c Move terms outside the circle to the opposite side.ab = d − c Only like terms can be added or subtracted. Write both terms because they are not alike. The term with ‘a’ is alone but there is another variable with it. Get the ‘a’ by itself by undoing the multiplication.
    11. 11. Solve for a: Identify the term with the variableab + c = d for which you are solving. −c −c Move terms outside the circle to the opposite side.ab = d − c Only like terms can be added or subtracted. Write both terms b b because they are not alike. The term with ‘a’ is alone but there is another variable with it. Get the ‘a’ by itself by undoing the multiplication.
    12. 12. Solve for a: Identify the term with the variableab + c = d for which you are solving. −c −c Move terms outside the circle to the opposite side.ab = d − c Only like terms can be added or subtracted. Write both terms b b because they are not alike. The term with ‘a’ is alone but there is another variable with it. Get the d−c ‘a’ by itself by undoing thea= multiplication. b Nothing can be simplified so this is the final answer.
