These cards give you rules to solving equations as well as practice problems that have the answers on the back. One and Two Step Equations are presented here.

To solve an equation you must......

Get the variable alone

To get the variable alone you must.....

Get rid of the things on the variable side

To get rid of addition you must.......

Subtract on BOTH sides of the equation

To get rid of subtraction you must......

Add on BOTH sides of the equation

To get rid of division you must.....

Multiply on BOTH sides of the equation

To get rid of multiplication you must....

Divide on BOTH sides of the equation

x + 7 = 12

Subtract 7 from both sides leaving you with

x = 5

x = 5

x - 8 = 17

Add 8 to both sides leaving you with

x = 25

x = 25

x/2 = 36

Multiply 2 on both sides leaving you with

x = 72

x = 72

4x = 12

Divide 4 on both sides leaving you with

x = 3

x = 3

x - 6 = 78

x = 84

8x = 64

x = 8

6x - 13 = 41

x = 9

18 = 6x

x = 3

21 = 3x

x = 7

2x = 10

x = 5

x = 15 - 3

x = 12

x/3

x = 15

13x = 26

x = 2

5x = 45

x = 9
