Course 3

Some problems produce equations that have variables on both sides of the equal sign.

Solving an equation with variables on both sides is similar to solving an equation with a variable on only one side. You can add or subtract a term containing a variable on both sides of an equation.

Course 3

To solve multistep equations with variables on both sides, first combine like terms and clear fractions. Then add or subtract variable terms to both sides so that the variable occurs on only one side of the equation. Then use properties of equality to isolate the variable.

Additional Example 3: Consumer Application

Jamie spends the same amount of money each morning. On Sunday, he bought a newspaper for $1.25 and also bought two doughnuts. On Monday, he bought a newspaper for fifty cents and bought five doughnuts. On Tuesday, he spent the same amount of money and bought just doughnuts. How many doughnuts did he buy on Tuesday?

Additional Example 3 Continued

First solve for the price of one doughnut.

Let d represent the price of one doughnut.

1.25 + 2d = 0.50 + 5d

– 2d– 2d

Subtract 2d from both sides.

1.25 = 0.50 + 3d

Subtract 0.50 from both sides.

– 0.50– 0.50

0.75 = 3d

Divide both sides by 3.

The price of one doughnut is $0.25.

0.25 = d

Now find the amount of money Jamie spends each morning.

Choose one of the original expressions.

1.25 + 2(0.25) = 1.75

Jamie spends $1.75 each morning.

Find the number of doughnuts Jamie buys on Tuesday.

Let n represent the number of doughnuts.

0.25n = 1.75

Divide both sides by 0.25.

n = 7; Jamie bought 7 doughnuts on Tuesday.
