#### Storyboard Text

• Hello! Today I'm going to teach you how to do a two step equation.
• First we have to distribute the 2 outside of the parentheses to the other two numbers inside the parentheses.
• Today the equation we will be solving is 2(2x-4)=10
• After distributing our next step is to use the inverse step (inverse is the opposite) ex: addition's inverse is subtraction.
• So after distributing our equation is 4x-8=10 since 2*2x is 4x and 2*4 is 8.
• So now we take the equation 4x-8=10 and add 8 to both the -8 and 10. So now our equation is 4x=18. (this happens because the -8 and +8 cancel each other out so you're left with just the 4x.)
• By adding 8 to both the -8 and 10 we used the equality property of addition because we added 8 to both sides.
• By adding the 8 we also used the inverse step because the inverse of subtraction is addition.
• Now we take the equation 4x=18 and divide each side by 4 so the solution is X=4.5 because 4x divided by 4 is X and 18 divided by 4 is 4.5.
• We also used the equality property of division because we divided both sides by 4.
• We divided by 4 to isolate the variable.
• Now we've found out the solution is X=4.5.
• And that's all there is to it. We have solved the equation!
