### Transcript

• 1. One-Step Equations Vocabulary Equation &#x2013; a mathematical sentence that contains an equal sign. The equation acts like a balance scale. Solution &#x2013; a number that can replace a variable in an equation and make a true statement. Algebra- A branch of
• 2. Since an equation is like a balance scale, if you do something to one side, then you have to do it to the other side.
• 3. We solve one-step equations by performing the opposite operation or &#x201C;inverse operation.&#x201D; Addition Subtractio n Multiplicatio n Division Subtractio n Addition Division Multiplication
• 4. Inverse operations- two operations that have the opposite effect Addition Subtraction Multiplication Division
• 5. Let&#x2019;s look at it using algebra Step 1: Complete the inverse operation to both sides of the equation. x + 10 = 15 - 10 10 = 5 x Step 2: Write or &#x201C;bring down&#x201D; the result.
• 6. Step 3: Check the solution by &#x201C;substituting&#x201D; or
• 7. Solving One-Step Addition Equations
• 8. What if the equation were written this way? x+1=7
• 9. Which operation should we choose to solve? x+1=7 Subtraction
• 10. To keep the equation balanced&#x2026;.. &#x2026;.we must perform the same operation to both sides.
• 11. Since this is addition, we subtract the same number from both sides. X+1=7 -1 -1
• 12. X+1=7 -1 -1 X =6
• 13. Example 1 m + 18 = 34 -18 -18 m = 16 Do the inverse m + 18 = 34 16 + 18 = 34 34 = 34 substitute in m Look for variable Write what m is Solution is correct!
• 14. Example 1 (bar model) m + 18 = 34 m 18 Look for variable Do the inverse What number does m represent? 34 m = 16 Substitute in m 16 18 34 16 + 18 = 34 34 = 34 Solution is correct!
• 15. Solving One-Step Subtraction Equations
• 16. What if the equation were written this way? x&#x2013;1=8
• 17. Which operation should we choose to solve? x&#x2013;1=8 Addition
• 18. To keep the equation balanced&#x2026;.. &#x2026;.we must perform the same operation to both sides.
• 19. Since this is subtraction, we add the same number to both sides. x&#x2013;1= 8 + 1 +1
• 20. x&#x2013;1= 8 + 1 +1 =9 X
• 21. Try These... 1. 2. 3. 4. r + 5 = 18 m - 26 = 59 102 = x - 15 a + 39 = 56 r = 13 m = 85 117 = x a = 17
• 22. Solving One-Step Multiplication Equations
• 23. What if the equation were written this way? 2x = 12
• 24. Which operation should we choose to solve? 2x = 12 Division
• 25. To keep the equation balanced&#x2026;.. &#x2026;.we must perform the same operation to both sides.
• 26. Since this is multiplication, we divide both sides by the same number. 2x = 12 2 2
• 27. 2x = 12 2 2 X =6
• 28. Solving One-Step Division Equations
• 29. What if the equation were written this way? x -2=4
• 30. Which operation should we choose to solve? x -2=4 Multiplication
• 31. To keep the equation balanced&#x2026;.. &#x2026;.we must perform the same operation to both sides.
• 32. Since this is division, we multiply both sides by the same number. x&#x2013;2=4 2(x &#x2013; 2) = 2(4)
• 33. x&#x2013; 2=4 2(x &#x2013; 2) = 2(4) X = 8
• 34. A check only takes 3 steps: 1. Write the original equation. 2. Substitute the answer for the variable. 3. Verify that both sides are equal. 2x = 12 2(6) = 12 12 = 12
