I WILL LEARN:
Multiple ways to solve two-step linear equations.

PROCEDURES:

  • We will solve each equation and then check our solutions:
    • 11x - 4 = 29
    • (a+7) / 8 = 5
    • 2a - 6 = 4
    • (n+1) / 2 = 15
    • Hiroshi is buying a pair of water skis on sale for 2/3 of the original price. After he used a $25 gift certificate, the total cost before taxes is $115. Write an equation for the problem. Then solve the equation.
    • A music store has sold 3/5 of their hip-hop CDs, but were 10 were returned. Now the store has 62 hip-hop CDs. How many were there originally?
    • Len read 3/4 of a graphic novel over the weekend. Monday, he read 22 more pages. If he has read 220 pages, how many pages does the book have?
    • 2q + 11 = 3
    • (k + 9) / 12 = -2

These problems are in a PowerPoint in RELATED PAGES at the bottom of this entry.
