Poll #1: The 3 that is in front of the x is a (a) coefficient, (b) constant, (c) variable, or (d) fraction. Poll #2: The 36 is a (a) coefficient, (b) constant, (c) variable, or (d) fraction. Poll #3: The x is a (a) coefficient, (b) constant, (c) variable, or (d) fraction. Discuss the -1 coefficient on the RHS of the equation. Slide in labels after polls are completed. Discuss equals sign to transition to next slide.
Have students brainstorm scenarios in which trial and error would be tedious.
Is there only one way to solve an equation? Do the steps have to happen in a specific order?
Translate verbal expressions into algebraic expression and equations and vice versa.
Solve equations using the properties of equality.

Solving Equations A mathematical sentence (expression) containing one or more variables is called an open sentence . A mathematical sentence stating that two mathematical expressions are equal is called an _________. equation Open sentences are neither true nor false until the variables have been replaced by numbers. Each replacement that results in a true statement is called a ________ of the open sentence. solution

To solve equations, we can use properties of equality. Some of these equivalence relations are listed in the following table. Reflexive Symmetric Transitive Substitution For any real number a , a = a , For all real numbers a and b , If a = b, then For all real numbers a , b , and c . If a = b, and b = c, then If a = b, then a may be replaced by b and b may be replaced by a. b = a a = c – 5 + y = – 5 + y If 3 = 5x – 6, then 5x – 6 = 3 If 2x + 1 = 7 and 7 = 5x – 8 then, 2x + 1 = 5x – 8 If (4 + 5) m = 18 then 9m = 18 Solving Equations Properties of Equality Property Symbol Example
5.
Sometimes an equation can be solved by adding the same number to each side or by subtracting the same number from each side or by multiplying or dividing each side by the same number. Addition and Subtraction Properties of Equality For any real numbers a , b , and c , if a = b, then a = b + c + c a = b - c - c Example: If x – 4 = 5, then x – 4 = 5 + 4 + 4 If n + 3 = –11, then n + 3 = –11 – 3 – 3 Solving Equations

Multiplication and Division Properties of Equality For any real numbers a , b , and c , if a = b, then a = b · c · c a = b Example: 4 4 Solving Equations c c - 3 -3
Let’s first take a look at an equation and identify its parts
Coefficient Constant Variable

So do we just use trial and error to find the right value?
No.
We can use inverse operations to isolate, or solve for, the variable’s value.
Inverse operations? Think about it …
The inverse operation of addition is subtraction . And the inverse operation of multiplication is division .
