```Solve Equations With
Variables on Both Sides
Section 1.5
Advanced Algebra 1
Steps to Solve Equations
with Variables on Both Sides
1) Simplify each side

Get rid of double Negatives
Get rid of fractions

Distribute

Combine Like Terms
 2) Move variables to same side

“Smaller to the bigger”
 3) Solve by using INVERSE Operations

Use Steps to Solve Equation:
-3x + 4 = 5x – 8
+3x
+3x
4 = 8x - 8
+8
+8
12 = 8x

x = 3/2
Get variables on same side
of equation – use inverse
operation (add 3x)
Solve 2 step equation
Use Steps to Solve Equation:
2(x + 7) + 3 = 5x - 1
2x + 14 + 3 = 5x – 1
2x + 17 = 5x - 1
-2x
-2x
17 = 3x - 1

18 = 3x

x= 6
distribute
Combine like terms
Get variables on same side –
use inverse operation
Solve 2 step equation
Use Steps to Solve Equation:
4(1 – 2x) = 4 – 6x
4 – 8x = 4 - 6x
+8x
+ 8x
4 = 4 + 2x
-4 -4
0 = 2x

x= 0
Get rid of ( ) -- distribute
Get variables on same side
– use inverse operation
(add 8x)
Solve 2 step equation
Use Steps to Solve Equation:
9 + 5x = 5x + 9
-5x -5x
9=9
Infinite
Solutions
Get variables on same side
of equation – use inverse
operation (subtract 5x)
When solving, if you get a
TRUE STATEMENT, then
that means that any real
number works.
Use Steps to Solve Equation:
6x – 1 = 6x – 8
-6x
-6x
-1 = - 8
x = no solutions
The solution is no real
numbers or empty set
Get variables on same side
of equation – use inverse
operation (subtract 6x)
The variables zeroed out
and remaining is a false
statement where a
number is equal to a
different number, so there
will be no number that will
work in the equation.

4 – 6a + 4a = –1 – 5(7 – 2a)
D: Distributive P.
4 – 6a + 4a = –1 –5(7 – 2a)
4 – 6a + 4a = –1 –5(7) –5(–2a)
4 – 6a + 4a = –1 – 35 + 10a
4 – 2a = –36 + 10a
