Solving 2 Step Equations
 It is important to learn this process, so thatyou can apply it to more difficult equations!Solving Two-Step Equations left sideEvery equation has 2 sides, separated by the = sign.We can only have one = sign in the equation.4 + x =12right side We also use INVERSE OPERATIONS.The inverse of multiplication is division.The inverse of division is multiplication.The inverse of subtraction is addition.The inverse of addition is subtraction. Use inverse operations to undo the constantbefore undoing the coefficient.Coefficient4x+9=21Constant Example 14x4x      =  12 4               4+x-   99==- 9213solutiondivide both sides by 4subtract 9 from both sides Example 22p  -  3  =  272p         =   302p      =  15+ 3+3 2add 3 to both sidessolutiondivide both sides by 2 Your turn!5y   -  15    =  20Fill in the missing numbers.5y     =    35y    = Solve these two step equations.3y  +  8    =  233y     =    15y    = Solve these two step equations.4y  -  1    =  154y     =    16y    = Solve these two step equations.6y   +  7    =  376y     =    30y    = Solve these two step equations.8y   -  2    =  148y     =y    = Solve these two step equations.4y   +  3    =  514y     =y    = Solve these two step equations.5y   -  1    =  295y     =y    = Solve these two step equations.3y   +  14    =  233y     =y    = Solve these two step equations.8y   -  11    =  218y     =y    = Solve these two step equations.7y   -  9    =  54y    == Solve these two step equations.2y   +  7    =  17y    == Solve these two step equations.4y   -  8    =  32y    == Solve these two step equations.5y   +  3    =  18y    == Solve these two step equations.7y   +  9    =  44y    ==
