An equation in one variable is a statement in which two expressions, at least one containing the variable, are equal. To solve an equation means to find all those values of the variable that result in a true statement.

Procedures that Result in Equivalent Equations Interchange the two sides of the equation. Simplify each side. (Combine like terms, eliminate parentheses . . .) Add or subtract the same expression on both sides. Multiply both sides of the equation by the same nonzero expression. If one side is zero and the other can be factored use the Zero- Product Property.

Steps for Solving Equations Algebraically List any restrictions on the domain of the variable. Simplify the equation by replacing the original by a succession of equivalent equations using the procedures listed earlier.

    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.
