Solving equations

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

Practice

IXL

  1. Solve equations: complete the solution (J.7)
  2. Simplifying expressions by collecting like terms and using the distributive property (I.2)
