This preview shows page 1 - 3 out of 8 pages.

1.1: Solving One-Step Linear Equations Equation: a statement that two expressions are equal ( like 3? + 2 = 5) Linear equation in one variable: an equation that can be written in the form ?? + ? = 0 ( like 3? + 2 = 5) Solution: a value, that when substituted for the variable of the equation, makes the equation true ( ? = 1 is the one solution of 3? + 2 = 5) Inverse Operations: two operations that undo each other (addition and subtraction are inverse operations to each other, and multiplication and division are inverse operations to each other) Equivalent equations: equations that have the same solution ( 3? + 2 = 5 and 10? − 3 = 7 have the same solution, ? = 1 ) Our first four key tools in solving equations are: 1. Example of using Addition Property of Equality: 2. Example of using Subtraction Property of Equality: 3. Example of using Multiplication Property of Equality:

4. Example of using Division Property of Equality: An Approach to Solving Read-Life (Word) Problems 1. Understand the Problem: What is the unknown? (choose a variable to represent that!). What information is being given? What is being asked? 2. Make a Plan using one of the strategies you have learned over the years in math a.

"Before using Course Hero my grade was at 78%. By the end of the semester my grade was at 90%. I could not have done it without all the class material I found."

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
