# The Standard

I can solve linear equations.

# Success criteria

- I know the order of what’s happening to x in an equation
- -13x +72 –>
**times x by 13, then add 72**

- -13x +72 –>
- I know the order of how to “undo” (i.e. solve) what’s happening to x in an equation
- 4(x+3) – 19 –>
**add 19, divide by 4, subtract 3**

- 4(x+3) – 19 –>
- I can use the distributive property
- -3(2x – 5) –>
**-6x + 15**

- -3(2x – 5) –>
