Inverse operations – an operation
that undoes another operation.
Inverse operations
 + and –
  and 
Steps for solving equations
and inequalities
1.
◦
◦
Simplify each side of the equation or
inequality
Use the distributive property
Combine like terms
Move variables to one side and the
numbers to the other
3. Use inverse operations to undo
4. Use inverse operations to undo
multiplication/division
2.
Be careful
The steps in solving equations and
inequalities are the same UNLESS you
multiply or divide by a negative.
 If you do multiply or divide by a
negative the direction of the inequality
reverses or flips.

Why does it reverse?
We need to stay true to arithmetic

Auto Example

A replacement part for Cara’s
automobile costs \$22.50. The
mechanic charges \$25 per hour
for making the repair. How many
hours could the repair take if the
total bill is under \$100.00?
x = hours
\$22.50  25 x  \$100.00
You try!

The Ace Garage assesses a \$15 “shop charge”
plus \$20 an hour for labor. How many hours of
labor did a repair take if the total charge was
less than \$85?
x = hours
\$15.00  20 x  \$85.00
Two Estimates

estimates for the repair of his antique
sedan. The first shop will charge \$595
for parts plus \$22.50 per hour for
labor. A second shop offers to repair
the car for \$700 plus \$19 per hour for
labor. How many hours of labor must
be involved in order to make the
second estimate the cheaper?
x = hours
\$595  \$22.50 x  \$700  \$19 x
