#### Storyboard Text

• Five less than twice a number is equal to one half the difference of three times the number and 13.
• ﻿2x - 5 = 1/2 (3x - 13)
• ﻿How do you solve that?
• First we use distributed property. So we need to multiply 1/2  x 3x and 1/2 x 13. So now your equation is 2x -5 =  1.5x -  6.5.
• I don't remember what is next!﻿
• ﻿I do! Now yo isolate the variable!  So you subtract 1.5x in both sides so you are going to be left with 0.5x - 5 = -6.5. ﻿
• ﻿Now I am stuck again I don't remember the next step.
• I do, know you add 5 in both sides so you will be left with 0.5x=-1.5  ﻿ .
• Why don't you continue to solve it?﻿
• Hahahaha okay then. Now it is simple, you just divide both sides by 0.5 and you will be left with x = 3﻿
• ﻿THAT EQUATION WAS OUT OF THIS WORLD!!
