`Objective To solve m ulti-step equations in o n e variable`

`In this lesson, you will learn to w rite a n d solve m ulti-step equations.`

`Essential U nderstanding To solve m ulti-step equations, you form a series of`

simpler equivalent equations. To do this, use the properties of equality, inverse operations,

an d properties of real num bers. You use th e p roperties until you isolate th e variable.

What is the solution of 5 = 5m — 23 + 2m?

different from 5 = 5m - 23 + 2m

equations you've

seen before? 5 = 5m + 2m^ — 2 3 Commutative Property of Addition

The variable occurs in 5 = 7m — 2 3 Combine like terms.

two terms. You can

sim plify the equation by

grouping like terms and

combining them.

`5 + 23 = 7 m - 23 + 23`

28 = 7m^

28 7m

`A dd 23 to each side.`

Simplify.

Divide each side by 7.

4 = m Simplify.

Check 5 = 5m — 2 3 + 2m

5 = 5 ( 4 ) - 23 + 2 ( 4 ) Substitute 4 for m.

5 = 5 / S im plify. The s o lu tio n checks.
