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 - 8 = 17
Add 8 to both sides leaving you with
x = 25
x/2 = 36
Multiply 2 on both sides leaving you with
x = 72
4x = 12
Divide 4 on both sides leaving you with
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
