Words cost per times number of plus basic

• hour hours fee
• Let h = number of hours rented. Let C = total cost
• Expression 2 • h + 12
Exploring Two-Step Equations

COURSE 2 LESSON 2-5

To rent a bicycle, you pay a \$12 basic fee plus \$2 per hour. Write an equation for the total cost in dollars of a bicycle rental.

• Now set the expression equal to the total cost to make an equation.
• Equation 2h + 12 = C
• Multiplying the hours rented by 2 and adding the basic fee = the total cost.

– 4 = 14Cover 9k. Think: What number minus

9k = 18So , or 9k, must equal 18.

9 • = 18 Think: What number times 9 is 18? Answer: 2

k = 2 So , or k, must equal 2.

Exploring Two-Step Equations

COURSE 2 LESSON 2-5

Solve 9k – 4 = 14 using number sense.

9k – 4 = 14

2-5

Check 9k – 4 = 14 Check your solution in the original equation.

9(2) – 4 14Substitute 2 for k.

18 – 4 14 Simplify.

14 = 14 The solution checks.

Words amount plus (amount to is \$200

• saved month • 6)
• Let z = amount to save per month.
• Equation 80 + (z • 6) = 200
Exploring Two-Step Equations

COURSE 2 LESSON 2-5

The Healy family wants to buy a DVD player that costs \$200. They already have \$80 saved toward the cost. How much will they have to save per month for the next six months in order to have the whole cost saved?

2-5

80 + = 200 Cover 6z. Think: What number added to 80 is 200? Answer: 120.

• 6z = 120So , or 6z, must equal 120.
• 6 = 120 Think: What number times 6 is 120? Answer: 20.
• z = 20 So , or z, must equal 20.

COURSE 2 LESSON 2-5

(continued)

• 80 + 6z = 200
• They will have to save \$20 per month.
