What is an equation?

An equation is a mathematical statement, in symbols, that two things are exactly the same (or equivalent). Equations are written with an equal sign, as in

2 + 3 = 5

9 – 2 = 7


Table of contents

Equations can also be used to state the equality of two

expressions containing one or more variables.

In real numbers we can say, for example, that for any given value of x it is true that

4x + 1 = 14 - 1

If x = 3, then

4(3) + 1 = 14 - 1

12 + 1 = 13

13 = 13


Table of contents

When defining your variables, remember...

Letters from the beginning of the alphabet like a, b, c... often denote constants in the context of the discussion at hand.

While letters from end of the alphabet, like x, y, z..., are usually reserved for the variables, a convention initiated by Descartes.

Try It!

Write an equation with a variable and have a classmate identify the variable and its value.


Table of contents

An equation can be compared to a balanced scale.

Both sides need to contain the same quantity in order for it to be "balanced".


Table of contents

For example, 20 + 30 = 50 represents an equation because both sides simplify to 50.

20 + 30 = 50

50 = 50

Any of the numerical values in the equation can be represented by a variable.

Examples:

20 + c = 50

x + 30 = 50

20 + 30 = y


Table of contents

Why are we Solving Equations?

First we evaluated expressions where we were given the value of the variable and had to find what the expression simplified to.

Now, we are told what it simplifies to and we need to find the value of the variable.

When solving equations, the goal is to isolate the variable on one side of the equation in order to determine its value (the value that makes the equation true).


Table of contents

In order to solve an equation containing a variable, you need to use inverse (opposite/undoing) operations on both sides of the equation.

Let's review the inverses of each operation:

Addition Subtraction

Multiplication Division


Table of contents

There are four properties of equality that we will use to solve equations. They are as follows:

Addition Property

If a=b, then a + c=b + c for all real numbers a, b, and c. The same number can be added to each side of the equation without changing the solution of the equation.

Subtraction Property

If a=b, then a-c=b-c for all real numbers a, b, and c. The same number can be subtracted from each side of the equation without changing the solution of the equation.

Multiplication Property

If a=b, and c=0, then ac=bc for all real numbers ab, b, and c. Each side of an equation can be multiplied by the same nonzero number without changing the solution of the equation.

Division Property

If a=b, and c=0, then a/c=b/c for all real numbers ab, b, and c. Each side of an equation can be divided by the same nonzero number without changing the solution of the equation.


Table of contents

To solve for "x" in the following equation...

x + 7 = 32

Determine what operation is being shown (in this case, it is addition). Do the inverse to both sides.

x + 7 = 32

- 7-7

x = 25

In the original equation, replace x with 25 and see if it makes the equation true.

x + 7 = 32

25 + 7 = 32

32 = 32


Table of contents

For each equation, write the inverse operation needed to solve for the variable.

a.) y +7 = 14 subtract 7b.) a - 21 = 10 add 21

c.) 5s = 25 divide by 5d.) x = 5 multiply by 12

Think about this...

To solve c - 3 = 12

Which method is better? Why?

Kendra

Added 3 to each side of the equation

c - 3 = 12

+3 +3

c = 15

Ted

Subtracted 12 from each side, then added 15.

c - 3 = 12

-12 -12

c - 15 = 0

+15 +15

c = 15


Table of contents

Think about this...

In the expression

To which does the "-" belong?

Does it belong to the x? The 5? Both?

The answer is that there is one negative so it is used once with either the variable or the 5. Generally, we assign it to the 5 to avoid creating a negative variable.

One Step Equations

Return to Table

of Contents


Table of contents

To solve equations, you must work backwards through the order of operations to find the value of the variable.

Remember to use inverse operations in order to isolate the variable on one side of the equation.

Whatever you do to one side of an equation, you MUST do to the other side!

Examples:

y + 9 = 16

- 9 -9The inverse of adding 9 is subtracting 9

y = 7

6m = 72

6 6The inverse of multiplying by 6 is dividing by 6

m = 12

Remember - whatever you do to one side of an equation, you MUST do to the other!!!

Two-Step Equations

Return to Table

of Contents


Table of contents

Sometimes it takes more than one step to solve an equation. Remember that to solve equations, you must work backwards through the order of operations to find the value of the variable.

This means that you undo in the opposite order (PEMDAS):

1st: Addition & Subtraction

2nd: Multiplication & Division

3rd: Exponents

4th: Parentheses

Whatever you do to one side of an equation, you MUST do to the other side!

- 4 - 4Undo addition first

Steps for Solving Multiple Step Equations

As equations become more complex, you should:

1. Simplify each side of the equation.

(Combining like terms and the distributive property)

2. Use inverse operations to solve the equation.

Remember, whatever you do to one side of an equation,

you MUST do to the other side!

Always check to see that both sides of the equation are simplified before you begin solving the equation.

Sometimes, you need to use the distributive property in order to simplify part of the equation.


Table of contents

Distributive Property

For all real numbers a, b, c

a(b + c) = ab + ac

a(b - c) = ab - ac

Examples

5(20 + 6) = 5(20) + 5(6)

2. Collect the variable terms on one side of the equation. (Add or subtract one of the terms from both sides of the equation)

3. Solve the equation.

Remember, whatever you do to one side of an equation, you MUST do to the other side!

Remember...

1. Simplify each side of the equation.

Collect the variable terms on one side of the equation.

(Add or subtract one of the terms from both sides of the equation)

3. Solve the equation.

(Undo addition and subtraction first, multiplication and division second)

Remember, whatever you do to one side of an equation, you MUST do to the other side!

Formulas show relationships between two or more variables.

You can transform a formula to describe one quantity in terms of the others by following the same steps as solving an equation.

Example:

Transform the formula d = r t to find a formula

for time in terms of distance and rate.

What does "time in terms of distance and rate" mean?

×

d = r t

= t

Divide both sides by r
