### Linear Equations in One Variable

### Linear Equations in One Variable

Objective: To find solutions of linear equations.

An equation in x is a statement that two algebraic expressions are equal. For example, 3x – 5 = 7 is an equation.

Solutions of Equations

- To solve an equation in x means to find all values of x for which the equation is true. Such values are called solutions.

Solutions of Equations

- To solve an equation in x means to find all values of x for which the equation is true. Such values are called solutions.
- For instance, x = 4 is the solution of the equation 3x – 5 = 7 since replacing x with 4 makes a true statement.

Identity vs. Conditional Equation

- Identity-An equation that is true for every real number in the domain of the variable.

Identity vs. Conditional Equation

- Identity-An equation that is true for every real number in the domain of the variable.
- For example,

is an identity since it is always true.

Identity vs. Conditional Equation

- Conditional Equation-An equation that is true for just some (or even none) of the real numbers in the domain of the variable.

Identity vs. Conditional Equation

- Conditional Equation-An equation that is true for just some (or even none) of the real numbers in the domain of the variable.
- For example,

is conditional because x = 3 and x = -3 are the only solutions.

Definition of a Linear Equation

- A linear equation in one variablex is an equation that can be written in the standard form ax + b = 0, where a and b are real numbers and a cannot equal 0.

Linear Equations in other forms

- Some equations involve fractions. Our goal is to get rid of the fraction by multiplying by the common denominator.

Linear Equations in other forms

- Some equations involve fractions. Our goal is to get rid of the fraction by multiplying by the common denominator.
- The common denominator is 12. Multiply everything by 12.

Extraneous Solutions

- When multiplying or dividing an equation by a variable expression, it is possible to introduce an extraneous solution.
- An extraneous solution is one that you get by solving the equation but does not satisfy the original equation.

Example 4

Example 4

- Solve the following.
- If we try to replace each x value with x = -2, we will get a zero in the denominator of a fraction, which we cannot have. There are no solutions.
