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!
