Linear Equations : Solving Equations With Multiple Steps Quiz
Quiz
*Theme/Title:
Solving Equations With Multiple Steps
* Description/Instructions
When solving equations for a particular variable, sometimes you must use more than one of the equality properties.
Example: 3x - 2 = 7
For this problem, you will have to use the addition/subtraction property and the multiplication/division property in order to solve for X.
3x - 2 + 2 = 7 + 2 Add 2 to both sides
3x = 9
3x/3 = 9/3 Divide both sides by 3
x = 3
Here are a few steps to follow when solving multi-step equations:
1. Simplify both sides of the equation whenever possible
2. Use the +/- property to isolate terms
3. Use the multiplication/division property to further isolate terms
4. Check your work
For each of the following questions, solve for "x" using the multi-step method. You will need scratch paper, a pencil and a calculator. Select the best answer from the choices.
