Solving Equations

L.O to be able to find the solution to double barrel equations involving multiple terms in the equation

Solving equations is the same as solving formula but equations can be more complex in the sense that there can be the same term on both sides. For instance some equations can take the form of:

This makes it more complex when solving the equation and finding the exact value of x.

The way to tackle equations like these is to get all the X’s on the same side. Thereafter applying the inverses will allow you to find the exact value of x.

For instance with the equation:

4x + 6 = 2x + 8

Note how both methods give you the same solution. This is because both methods start by placing the x terms on the same side. This can either be done by –2xwhich would cancel out the x terms on the LHS as method 1 shows. However the same can be done by -4xwhich would cancel out the x terms on the RHS as method 2 suggests.

The latter steps are ones you should now be familiar with from solving formulae and inequalities: these steps simply involve applying the inverse operations.

Example 1: Solve the following equation 6x – 7 = 2x + 9

Example 2 : Solve the following equation -9x + 3 = 3x + 15
