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
