Linear Equations : Solving Equations with Parentheses Quiz
Quiz
*Theme/Title:
Solving Equations with Parentheses
* Description/Instructions
Equations often contain parentheses. When these kinds of problems have to be solved, the distributive property must be used. Then like terms are combined and the equation can be solved.
Example:
6x - 4(2 - 3x) = 28
6x - 8 + 12x = 28 Distribute the 4
18x - 8 = 28
18x - 8 + 8 = 28 + 8 Add 8 to both sides
18x = 36 Divide both sides by 18
x = 2
For the following problems, use the distributive property to remove the parentheses. You will need scratch paper and a pencil. Read each question carefully and select the best answer from the choices.
