#### Storyboard Text

• ﻿2(4x-3)-8=4+2x 8x-6-8=4+2x 8x-14=4+2x
• How come you have to combine like terms?
• Because when we solve later in the equation it makes it easier﻿ later on
• ﻿2(4x-3)-8=4+2x 8x-6-8=4+2x 8x-14=4+2x 6x-14=4
• Because it is a postive 2x you subtract 2x from both sides to get 6x-14=4﻿
• Next step is to move all of the variables to one side﻿
• ﻿2(4x-3)-8=4+2x 8x-6-8=4+2x 8x-14=4+2x 6x-14=4 6x=18
• ﻿We are adding 14 because we have to cancel out the -14 in the equation. You do the inverse opperation
• ﻿Now we have to move the constants to the same side
• ﻿2(4x-3)-8=4+2x 8x-6-8=4+2x 8x-14=4+2x 6x-14=4 6x=18 x=3
• We do this by dividing both sides by 6 to get the x alone. The answer to or equation is x=3﻿
• ﻿And for our last step we isolate the variable
• ﻿Thank you for teaching me how to do a multistep equation
• How do you know my name?﻿
• I know everything I am a teacher
• No problem James﻿
• The teacher was dressed as a clown and knew everything it was weird﻿
• ﻿I learned how to do multi step equations
• ﻿Good job James
• ﻿I know I am her daughter
