### Solving One Step Equations

1.) Using Inspections; Mental math

a + 4 = 12

Ask yourself what plus 4 equals to 12 or 12 - something to equal 12 .

8 + 4 = 12

12

try:

1.) 14 = k + 5

9 + 5

14

2.) T - 3 = 11

14 - 3 = 11

11

3.) 10 - y = 8

10 - 2 = 8

8

2.) Model and Solve .

model : 11 - 4 = 7

OOOOOOOOOOO - OOOO = OOOOOOO

3.) Apply The Opposite Operation.

C + 22 = 56

- 22 -22

1st. Isolate the variable.

2nd. Apply the opposite operation.

3rd. check the answer,substitute the answer for the letter of the original equation.

Opposite Operation- An operation that "undoes" another operation.

Eg.

division and multiplication.

N + 7 = 26 d - 3 = - 5

-7 -7 +3 +3

19 + 7 = 26 (-2) - 3 = -5

C = Cup.

C + 3 = 6

Don't forget to do your homework!

1. Great post Katerina. I like that your scribe is neat, organized and easy to understand. It's really helpful to the people that went with Mrs. Wilson. I also like how you changed the colour of some of the words. You should post the homework next time.

2. Nice post Katerina!! It was very organized and neat but next time you should post the homework for the people who were with Mrs.Wilson. Otherwise, GREAT JOB!!!!
