5. Try This<br />This line represents an equals sign. Try placing your tiles on the sheet to represent x=5<br /> <br />
6. Try This<br />x−2=7<br /> <br />
7. Try This<br />What does x equal? How can you show this? What do you have to do to each side?<br />
8. Try This<br />The zero pairs cancel each other out leaving x=9. In order to keep our equation balanced we have to make sure to do the same thing to each side.<br />
9. Try This<br />When working with variables we want to “isolate the variable” getting it on one side of the equals sign and everything else on the other.<br />
11. Try This<br />Now try to isolate the variable. Remember, you want to get the x on one side of the equation and everything else on the other side. Also, remember, whatever you do to one side of the equation you must do to the other. <br />
12. Try This<br />Now try to isolate the variable. Remember, you want to get the x on one side of the equation and everything else on the other side. Also, remember, whatever you do to one side of the equation you must do to the other. <br />
13. Try This<br />We are now left with x=4<br />
14. Try This<br />2x=6<br /> <br />
15. Try This<br />Now arrange your tiles into equal groups<br />
16. Try This<br />Now arrange your tiles into equal groups.<br />X=3<br />
17. Try This<br />4x−6=10<br /> <br />
18. Try This<br />Now isolate the variable. Remember, whatever you do to one side of the equation you have to do to the other to keep it balanced.<br />
19. Try This<br />Now we need to put our tiles into equal groups to determine what x equals. <br />
