Isolate the variable (get it alone)

Solve One-Step Equations:Remember—Balance the scale

x + 2 = 7

x + 2 = 7

-2 -2

x = 5

Use Inverse Operations to isolate the variable

• Inverse Operations “undo” one another add/sub; mult/div; square/square root
• Get the variable alone (isolate the variable)
• What you do to one side of the equation, you do to the other side
• Use your knowledge of properties to make it easier to solve the equation!

One Step
