**Solving One Step Equations**Kaitlyn Sand 5.03 Solving one-step equations**Order of Operations**PEMDAS right to left to solve: (multiplication) (subtraction) (addition)**Solving One Step Equations**Opposite of PEMDAS; SADMEP. • S – subtraction • A – addition • D – division • M – multiplication • E – exponents (remember, we haven’t • P – parenthesis talked about these yet!)**One Step Equations**-Perform 1 step to solve -Try to get “X” by itself -Do the same operation to both sides -Just like what you did on excel math:**Excel Math**+ 3 = 5 Now, we use X as a place holder instead of the empty square. X + 3 = 5**What you do to ONE side, you MUST do to the other.**X + 3 = 5 (Subtract 3 from both sides) -3 -3 X = 2**2X = 10**2 2 X = 5 6 – 1X = 2 -6 -6 -1X = -4 -1 -1 X = 4**Foamy Squishy Things Introduction**= X + = 0 = 1 = -1**X + 3 = 5**You can also use foamy squishy things to solve problems. += =**Using Foamy Squishy Things**Set up your foamy squishy things in the form of this problem: X + ˉ5 = 2**- =**=
