#### Storyboard Text

• y/2 + 16 = 32
• When solving this two-step equation you would start with inverse operation.
• What would you do first?
• You would subtract 16 from both sides of the equation
• y/2 + 16 = 32
• - 16 -16
• Correct!! So, when you subtract 16 from both sides of the equation you get 16.
• What would you do next?
• Oh! You would multiply both sides by 2?
• y/2 • 2 = 16 • 2
• y/2 + 16 = 32
• - 16 -16
• Correct! You would multiply by 2 because you would flip the equation y/2 to 2/1, the 'y' would turn to a 1.
• When you multiply, the the two '2's would cancel out leaving you with just 'y'on the one side of the equation.
• When you multiply both sides, you are left with y = 16. 16 equals 'y', you can check this by doing 16/2 + 16 and you will get 32!
• y/2 • 2 = 16 • 2
• y = 16
• y/2 + 16 = 32
• - 16 -16
• y = 16 is the final answer to this 2-step equation!
