One-Step Equations with Rational Coefficients
Problem 1
Problem 2
What is the slowest time s?
Sometimes you need to multiply
both sides by a number in order
to isolate the variable.
The difference between the fastest
and slowest time is 3.84 seconds.
The slowest time is s.
The fastest time is 7.2 seconds.
The solution to the equation is a  27.
s  3.84  7.2
 3.84 3.84

How is this problem like Problem 2? How is it different from Problem 2?
Both deal with rational numbers. One is written with the variable divided by
a number, and the other shows the variable multiplied by a fraction.
1. In Problem 1, how do you get the result “11.04” by adding “7.2” and
“3.84” since they have different numbers of decimal places?
