1. Solve linear equations by using a combination of simplifying and using

various properties of equality.

Introduction

Knowing how to solve linear equations will open the door to being able to work a

lot of other types of problems that you will encounter in your various algebra

classes. It is very important to have this concept down before moving ahead.

Make sure that you do not sever the mystery of finding your variable, but work

through some of these types of problems until you have this concept down.

Tutorial

Step 1: Simplify each side, if needed.

This would involve things like removing ( ), removing fractions, removing

decimals, and adding like terms.

This would involve things like removing ( ), removing fractions,

removing decimals, and adding like terms.

To remove ( ): Just use the distributive property found

To remove fractions: Since fractions are another way to write division,

and the inverse of divide is to multiply, you remove fractions by

multiplying both sides by the LCD of all of your fractions

side and all other terms to the other side.

front of the variable.

Step 4: Check your answer.

I find this is the quickest and easiest way to approach linear equations.

*Inverse of mult. by -3 is div. by -3

But, the operation between the -3 and x is multiplication not

subtraction. So if you were to add 3 to both sides you would have

ended up with -3x + 3 instead of the desired x.

If you put 1 back in for x in the original problem you will see that 1 is

the solution we are looking for.

*Get all x terms on one side

*Inverse of add. 3 is sub. 3

If you put 9 back in for x in the original problem you will see that 9 is

the solution we are looking for.

..

mult. both sides by the LCD of 4

*Get all the x terms on one side

*Inverse of add. 2 is sub. 2

mult. both sides by 100

*Get all the y terms on one side

*Inverse of sub. 20 is add 20

If you put 3/2 back in for y in the original problem you will see that 3/2

is the solution we are looking for.

Contradiction

A contradiction is an equation with one

variable that has no solution.

*Get all the x terms on one side

SOLVING EQUATIONS

This section illustrates the process of solving equations of various forms. It also shows

you how to check your answer three different ways: algebraically, graphically, and using

the concept of equivalence. The following table is a partial list of typical equations.

LINEAR EQUATIONS - Solve for x in the following equations.

1. x - 4 = 10

2. 2x - 4 = 10

3. 5x - 6 = 3x - 8

2(3x - 7) + 4 (3 x + 2) = 6 (5 x + 9 ) + 3
