1. Solving Algebraic Equations

2. Equality3 = 33+4 = 3+43+4 = 7For what value of x is: x + 4 = 7 true?Answer: when x=3, then the equation is true.

3. How do I Solve Algebraic Equations? What ever you add, subtract, multiply or divide to one side of the equation, you have to do the same to the other side of the equation! Try to isolate the variable to one side of the equation. Always substitute your answer for the variable to see if the answer and equation are true!

4. Example #1: x+4=7 x+4+(-4) = 7 + (-4) x + 0 = 3 x = 3 Substituting: 3 + 4 = 7 7 = 7 (CHECK!)

5. Example #2: 2x=4 2∙x 4 1∙x = 2 x = 2 = 2 2 Substituting: 2x= 4 2∙2= 4 4 = 4 (CHECK!)

6. PROBLEMS: Solving Algebraic Equations Are you ready… 3,2,1… here we go!

7. Solve the Equation: v – 10 = -9

8. Answer:v - 10 +10 = -9+10v + 0 = 1v = 1

9. Solve the Equation: v – 10 = -3

10. Answer:v – 10 +10 = -3 +10v + 0 = 7v = 7

11. Solve the Equation: x – 3 = 4

12. Answer:x – 3 +3 = 4 +3x + 0 = 7x = 7

13. Note: x – 3 = 4 X = 4 + 3 X = 7

14. Getting back to Solving Equations… 3,2,1… here we go!
