Chapter 3 – Solving Linear Equations

Algebra 1

Fall 2013

- Solve linear equations using addition and subtraction
- Use linear equations to solve real-life problems
- Use multiplication and division to solve linear equations
- Solve multi-step equations with variables on both sides of the equals sign
- Problem solve with various equations
- Learn how to use manipulate decimals in linear equations

3.1 – Solving Equations Using Addition and Subtraction

- Solve linear equations using addition and subtraction
- Use linear equations to solve a variety of real-life problems

- Has an equal sign
- Combination of numbers and variables
- Complete thought with numbers and variables on left and right of the equal sign

- Equations have two sides
- Want to keep both sides equal

“What value does x have?”

We need x to have a value that will balance the scale!

- We need a process to solve more difficult problems
- We need to use inverse operations

- Definition:
- Examples:
- Why do we use inverse operations?

Operations that undo each other

Addition and subtraction

Multiplication and division

To isolate the variable (get the variable by itself)

State the Inverse Operation

- Add 7
- Subtract 3
- Add -11
- Subtract -2

Steps to Solving One-Step Equations

- Simplify both sides of the equation
- Isolate the variable (by using the inverse operation)
- Find the solution
- Check your solution

- Definition:

Equation in which the variable is raised to the first power and does not occur in a denominator inside a square root symbol, or inside absolute value symbols

x + 5 = 9

x2 – 8 = 16

-4 + x = 7 – 3x

16 + 5 = (x/5)

(2/x) + 1 = -10

| -17 + x | = 1

x3 + (-3) = 12

-6 = x

- You have x dollars and your friend pays you $6 that he owed you. You now have $14. How much money did you have before your friend paid you?

- A telephone pole extends 4 feet below the ground and 16 feet above the ground. What is the total length x of the telephone pole?

- Definition:

Two equations that have the same solution

2 + x = 9

x + (-2) = 5

The equations are equivalent because the solution to both equations is x = 7.

Draw an arrow from the equations on the left to their equivalent equations on the right.

x + 1 = 9

x = -7

8 + x = 5

x + (-3) = -10

4 + (-7) = x

5 + x = 13

| -6 | + x = 11| 5 | + 7 = x

x + 2 = 11 + 2x – (-2) = 5

-x = -10

3.7 – Formulas and Functions

- Objective
- Solve a formula for one of its variables

- Definition:
- An algebraic __________ that relates two or more ___________ quantities.

- Examples:
- Area of rectangle
- Temperature

equation

real-life

A = l ∙ w

C = 5/9 ∙ (F – 32)

A = l ∙ w

- What is the area of a rectangle with…
- l = 5 cm, w = 12 cm
- l = 7 ft, w = 9 ft
- l = 3 cm, w = 13 cm

60 cm2

63 cm2

39 cm2

Notice: We were given a length and width.

Using the Area Formula

A = l ∙ w

- What is the length of a rectangle with an area of 228 cm2 and a width of 12 cm?
- Turn to your partner and figure out a solution.

Notice: We are given a different set of information in this problem.

l = 19 cm

- We want the equation to say “l equals…”
- Think:

A = l ∙ w

How do I get l by itself?

- Perform the inverse operations to isolate the variable.

A = l ∙ w

l = (A/w)

l = (A/w)

- Use this new formula to solve for length.
- A = 49 cm2, w = 7 cm
- A = 108 ft2, w = 12 ft

7 cm

9 ft

- Solve the distance formula for time (t).
- The equation should say “t equals…”

- Solve the distance formula for the rate (r).
- The equation should say “r equals…”

d = r ∙ t

t = (d/r)

r = (d/t)

- 15x + 5y = 10
- 1 + 7y = 5x – 2
- 7x + 5x = -8 + 2y
