#### Storyboard Text

• 3x -  5= -8 (6 + 5x)
• ﻿What is that?  How do I solve is?
• Today you will be solving a multi - step equation
• 3x -  5= -8 (6 + 5x)
• ﻿What is the first step?
• ﻿Multi-step equations look like this. 3x -  5= -8 (6 + 5x)
• 3x -  5= -8 (6 + 5x)  3x - 5= -48 - 40x
• Oh ok so once you distribute them that takes away the  ( )
• ﻿The first step to multi - step equations is to distribute.  You can distribute by drawing arrows. Draw your arrows from the -8 to the 6 and 5x. Then multiply them.
• 3x -  5= -8 (6 + 5x)  3x - 5= -48 - 40x 43x - 5= -48
• ﻿Ok now it is a two step equation.
• Then you have  to combined like term's but there are none in this problem. So then now you have to get the variables on one side.  You do that by ether adding 3x to 40x but I added 40x to 3x.
• 3x -  5= -8 (6 + 5x)  3x - 5= -48 - 40x 43x - 5= -48 43x= -43
• Ok this isn't so hard.
• Yes. Now it is a two step equation. So add 5 to 5 then add 5 to -48﻿
• 3x -  5= -8 (6 + 5x)  3x - 5= -48 - 40x 43x - 5= -48 43x= -43 X= -1
• Ok that is not so confusing now
• THE END
• After you add 5 to -48. Then you divide    43 from -43 and get X= -1
