• Hi my name is Jessica and i love math and would be happy to help
• Hi, My name is Olivia and i need help with my math homework, it is about 2 step equations
• Thank you so much!
• In 2 step equations you have to get the variable by itself .
• What do you do in a 2 step equation?
• Ok that seems simple enough.
• The first step is to do the opposite of the addition or subtraction on both sides
• Yes! then it cancels out the +5 and brings the 21 down to 16. So the updated problem is 2x=16
• So you would subtract 5 from the +5 and the 21
• The problem is 2x+5=21
• The next step in this problem is to the opposite in this operation so you would have to divide by 2
• After we multiply on both sides we get x=8
• The first step to solve a 2 step equation is to do the opposite for addition and subtraction.
• the second step is to do the opposite of the multiplication or division.
• No problem! I'm glad you understand
• Thank you for helping me on doing 2 step equations!
