Compare and Contrast: Below are two equations. Solve each equation and compare the two solutions. Choose the statement that is true about each solution. Eq 1: 3x - 18 = 2x -20 Eq 2: 10 -2x = 4x + 34 The solution to equation #1 is larger than the solution to equation #2. None of the statements above describe solutions to equations shown. The solution to equation #1 is smaller than the solution to equation #2. The solution to equation #1 is the opposite of the solution to equation #2.

Do you know how to solve linear equations?

  • anonymous
not really
blurbendy
  • blurbendy
okay, the goal is to get 'x' by itself, meaning get it on one side of the equation. let's start with the first one: 3x - 18 = 2x -20 Let's get the 'x's' all one one side. how would we do that?

subtract 2x to both sides
blurbendy
  • blurbendy
perfect, so what does the equation look like after you do that?
anonymous
  • anonymous
x - 18 = -20
blurbendy
  • blurbendy
great. almost there. what do we do with the -18?
anonymous
  • anonymous
add on both sides
blurbendy
  • blurbendy
yup, so you'd end up with x = -2 can you do the second equation now?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yea thanks

okay, tell me what you get
