1. Chapter 2 Solving Equations

2. Students will be able to solve one step equations using addition and subtraction.

3. Linear Equations The variable(s) in the equation is(are) to the first power. Examples that are not linear equations: Examples:

4. Equations An equation shows that two quantities are equal “Keep the equation balanced”

5. Solving Equations To solve an equation: isolate the variable,thatis get the variable ALONE on one side of the equal sign. use inverse operations. Inverse operations are operations which undo each other

6. Solving Equations: OperationInverse Operation Addition Subtraction Addition Subtraction Division Multiplication Multiplication Division

7. Solving: How do you isolate the variable? What is happening to it and how can you “undo” this? What you do on one side of the equal sign, you must do on the other!
