Solving Equations

Solving linear equations is a fundamental skill in algebra. Linear equations are equations where the highest power of the variable is 1. In this lesson, we'll cover techniques for solving linear equations, including one-step and two-step equations.

One-Step Equations:

A one-step equation is an equation that can be solved in a single operation. The goal is to isolate the variable on one side of the equation. Here are some common one-step equations:

Two-Step Equations:

A two-step equation requires two operations to isolate the variable. Here's how to solve two-step equations:

Example 5: Solve for x in the equation "2x - 5 = 11."

Practice and Application:

Solving linear equations is a fundamental algebraic skill used in a wide range of applications. By mastering these techniques, you'll be better equipped to tackle more complex equations and solve real-world problems.
