Solving multi step equations

Storyboard Text

  • 3x - 6 = 4(2 - 3x) - 8x
  • Solving multi-step equations can look hard, but once you break it down into steps, its easy!
  • 3x - 6 = 4(2 - 3x) - 8x3x -6 = 8 - 12x -8x
  • First, use the distributive property on the values in the parenthesis.
  • 3x - 6 = 4(2 - 3x) - 8x
  • 3x -6 = 8 - 12x -8x3x - 6 = 8 - 20x
  • Next, you add or subtract the like terms on either side of the equals sign. In this case, that means the values with x.
  • Then add or subtract the like terms.
  • 3x - 6 = 4(2 - 3x) - 8x
  • 3x - 6 = 8 - 20x -3x -3x -6 = 8 - 23x
  • Then you subtract the smaller x value on both sides.
  • Then add or subtract the like terms.
  • -6 = 8 - 23x -8 -8 14 = -23x
  • 3x - 6 = 4(2 - 3x) - 8x
  • After that, you subtract the 8 on both sides. You want to get the 23x by itself.
  • Then add or subtract the like terms.
  • 14 = -23x -23x -23x 14/23 = x 1.64 = x
  • 3x - 6 = 4(2 - 3x) - 8x
  • Then add or subtract the like terms.
  • Finally, you divide both sides by -23x. This gets you 14/23 or 1.64 equals x.
