### Solving 2 step variable equations

1. 1. Solving 2-Step Variable Equations Solving Two-Step Equation <ul><li>Ms. Nixon’s Math Class </li></ul>
2. 2. Remember….
3. 3. What??? I just learned 1-step! <ul><li>Relax. You’ll use what you already know to solve 2-step equations. </li></ul>
4. 4. So, what’s first? <ul><li>You need to break up the equation into two steps . </li></ul>
5. 5. STEP 1 <ul><li>The first step will always be either adding or </li></ul><ul><li>subtracting . </li></ul>+ -
6. 6. STEP 2 <ul><li>The second step will always be either </li></ul><ul><li>multiplying or dividing . </li></ul>• ÷
7. 7. Let’s try a problem. <ul><li>8x + 5 = 61 </li></ul>This problem has addition, so we need to subtract first. - 5 - 5 Whatever we do on one side, we have to do on the other. 8x 56 =
8. 8. Now, Step 2. <ul><li>8x = 56 </li></ul>This problem has multiplication, so we need to divide now. Whatever we do on one side, we have to do on the other. 8 8 x = 7
9. 9. Let’s try another problem. <ul><li>3a - 8 = 4 </li></ul>This problem has subtraction, so we need to add first. + 8 + 8 Whatever we do on one side, we have to do on the other. 3a 12 =
10. 10. Now, Step 2. <ul><li>3a = 12 </li></ul>This problem has multiplication, so we need to divide now. Whatever we do on one side, we have to do on the other. 3 3 a = 4
11. 11. Now you try some problems. <ul><li>Copy these problems onto a piece of paper. </li></ul><ul><li>Break each problem into 2 parts to solve. </li></ul><ul><li>Show all your work! </li></ul>7f + 5 = 40 5q – 7 = 13 12t – 6 = 90 4y + 8 = -12
12. 12. More Practice Problems <ul><li>Follow your steps for solving an equation. </li></ul><ul><li>Write your steps neatly. </li></ul><ul><li>The object is to get the variable by itself. </li></ul><ul><li>Combine like terms first. </li></ul><ul><li>Check to make sure your answer makes sense. </li></ul>
13. 13. Problem 1 <ul><li>-12 = -3 x + 6 </li></ul>
14. 14. Answer <ul><li>6 = x </li></ul>
15. 15. Problem 2 <ul><li>4(-x + 5) = 68 </li></ul>
16. 16. Answer <ul><li>X = -12 </li></ul>
