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
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

the same?
