Rev.S08 4 Modeling Linear Functions http://faculty.valenciacc.edu/ashaw/ Click link to download other modules. - Algebraic and Graphical Solutions of Linear Equations - Fitting Lines to Data Points: Modeling Linear Functions There are two major topics in this module:
Rev.S08 5 Linear Equations in One Variable A linear equation in one variable is an equation that can be written in the form ax + b = 0 where a and b are real numbers with a ≠ 0. (Note the power of x is always 1.) Examples of linear equations in one variable: 5 x + 4 = 2 + 3 x simplifies to 2 x + 2 = 0 Note the power of x is always 1. - 1( x – 3) + 4(2 x + 1) = 5 simplifies to 7 x + 2 = 0 Note the power of x is always 1. Examples of equations in one variable which are not linear: x 2 = 1 (Note the power of x is NOT 1.) (Note the power of x is NOT always 1.) http://faculty.valenciacc.edu/ashaw/ Click link to download other modules.

Rev.S08 6 How to Solve a Linear Equations Symbolically? Solve - 1( x – 3) + 4(2 x + 1) = 5 for x - 1 x + 3 + 8 x + 4 = 5 7x + 7 = 5 7x = 5 – 7 7x = - 2 x = - 2/7 “Exact Solution” Linear Equations can always be solved symbolically and will produce an EXACT SOLUTION. The solution procedure is to isolate the variable on the left in a series of steps in which the same quantity is added to or subtracted from each side and/or each side is multiplied or divided by the same non-zero quantity. This is true because of the addition and multiplication properties of equality. http://faculty.valenciacc.edu/ashaw/ Click link to download other modules.
Rev.S08 7 How to Solve a Linear Equation Involving Fractions Symbolically? Solve Solution Process: http://faculty.valenciacc.edu/ashaw/ Click link to download other modules. When solving a linear equation involving fractions, it is often helpful to multiply both sides by the least common denominator of all of the denominators in the equation. The least common denominator of 3 and 4 is 12. Note that this is another “Exact Solution.”
