Kelsey, what are the steps in solving linear equations?
Umm, I'm sorry but I don't know.
OMG! I don't know the steps. Maybe I should ask Nathalie for some help.
Did you know what happened at the lobby yesterday?
This is how you solve ...
(both continues to chatter)
Why? What happened?
x-8=34 x=34+8 x=42
To solve that equation, first step is to transpose 2 to the other side and it will be negative since it is being transposed. It is now x = 16-2. Next step is to solve for 16-2 and the answer will be 14. So x=14.
