Ch. 2.4 POD 1. A + 27.7 = -36.6 2. M = -4.2 12 Equations with variables on both sides Solve: 6x + 3 = 8x - 21 First we want to get x on one side…. 6x + 3 = 8x – 21 -6x -6x Subtract 6x from both sides and combine like terms 3 = 2x – 21 +21 24 = 2x 2 2 12 = X + 21 Add 21 to both sides Divide both sides by 2 Example 2: -6d = d + 4 -d -6d = d + 4 -d -7d = 4 -7 -7 Practice: 1. Solve: m – 5 = 3m M = -5/2 2. Solve: 2(c – 6) = 9c +2 C = -2 D = -4/7 You can buy used in-line skates from your friend for $40, or you can rent some. Either way you must rent safety equipment. How many hours must you skate for the cost of renting and buying skates to be the same? Skates & safety equipment Cost of friend’s skates + Safety equipment rental = Skates AND equipment rental **let h stand for the number of hours you must skate 40 + 1.5h = 3.5h -1.5h -1.5h 40 = 2h 2 2 h = 20 $3.50 p/h Safety equipment $1.50 p/h ALWAYS DOUBLE CHECK YOUR ANSWER!!! A hairdresser is considering ordering a certain shampoo. Company A charges $4 per 8-oz bottle plus a $10 handling fee per order.
