Zofia1 3 years ago Which of the following equations does not require two steps to solve? -32+k=-26 -3b-22=7 5w-19=-15 10-p=2

1. chelsey20

second and third requires 3 steps i think

2. Zofia1

But, Which one for shure?

3. phi

when you solve all 4 equations, the first step is to move the constant term from the left side to the right side. then you would divide both sides of the equation by the coefficient of the variable to complete the process. however, note that the coefficient of k in the first equation is 1, so you do not need to do this step

I dont understand....

5. chelsey20

can you answer both? or just one? cuz i think it's both second n third.. in the second one, we have to exchange -3b and 7, so that the b would be positive, and then evaluate -7 -22 = -29 then -29 divided by 3 so it's 3 steps the same as third one

6. Zofia1

I can only answer one.. lol this is confusing mee!

7. phi

to solve the first equation -32+k=-26 you would add 32 to both sides: -32+k= -26 +32 = +32 ------------- k= + 6 That is a "one step" problem

8. Zofia1

Do you know which one is the answer?

9. phi

the question is asking Which of the following equations does not require two steps to solve?

10. Zofia1

I know tht

11. chelsey20

yea i think you can answer both

12. brezzybre

the first one

thanks i got tht tho! :)
