1.The left side of the equation is 2x + 2.
a. How many x-cups will you need to model this?
You will need2 x-cups
b. How many unit counters will you need to model this?
2 unit counters
c.Drag the correct number of cups and counters to the left side of the equal sign
1.You first need to subtract the unit counters from the left side and an equal number from the right side.
a. How many unit counters should be subtracted from
each side of the equation?
b. the right side. Once you isolate the variables on one side of the equation, you need to divide the remaining unit counters so that there are an equal number in each of the x-cups .
C.How many unit counters will be in each x-cup?
3x + 4 = 16
3(4) + 4 = 16
12 + 4 = 16
16 = 16
The solution x = 4 is correct
