Assignment: Problem Set: Combining Like Terms S olve the equations by combining like terms. Show all the steps. Then write two of your own problems where you combine like terms. Show all steps, as well as your solution.
4. 2(2 x - 4) + x = 7 (apply distributive property) (2 × 2x) +(2 × -4) + x = 7 4x + x – 8 = 7 (combine like terms) 5x – 8 = 7 (add 8 on both sides) 5x –8 + 8 = 7 + 8 5x = 15 (divide by 5) 5x ÷ 5 = 15 ÷ 5 X = 3 5. 8 = 3(3 x + 8) − x (use distributive property) (3 × 3x) + (3 × 8) - x = 8
