**Reverse the usual order of operations!**• Examples: • 5x + 3 = 23 Subtract 3 first - 3 -3 5x = 20 Divide by 5 5 5 x = 4**Example;**• x - 10 = 18 Add 10 to both sides + 10 +10 x = 28 Multiply by the reciprocal (both sides) · x = 28 · x = = 42!!!!!!**Example:**• 4m + 8 = 10 Get rid of fraction by multiplying by -2 -2 -2 · 4m + 8 = 10 · -2 -2 4m + 8 = -20 Subtract 8 from both sides -8 -8 4m = -28 Divide by 4 on both sides 4 4**Answer:**• m = -7 !!!!!**Writing Multi-Step equations!**• Example: eight more than 5 times a number is negative 62 8 + 5x = -62 Subtract 8 from both sides -8 -8 5x = -70 Divide 5 from both sides 5 5 x = -14**Example:**• Find 3 consecutive integers whose sum is 57: x + (x + 1) + ( x + 2) = 57 3x + 3 = 57 Subtract 3 from both sides -3 -3 3x = 54 Divide 3 from both sides 3 3 x = 18
