Now that you've studied the lesson on solving two-step equations I know you are ready to practice a couple of problems!
Just two things to remember when solving these equations - Let's review them quickly!
Always remove the constant first using addition or subtraction.
Your second step will be to remove any coefficients or divisors using multiplication or division.
Ok.. let's practice just a few problems!
Solve each two step equation for the variable x. Don't forget to check your answers by substituting! If you need help, click here to go back to the Two-Step Equations Examples.
1. -4x -3 = 12
2. 2x +5 = -21
3. 1/2x - 6 = 4
How did you do? If you got most of them correct, then you are ready to move on to Solving Equations with Fractions.
If you didn't do so well, go back and study the Two-step example problems and then try the practice problems again.
