Solve and check using algebraic method. Show work on graph paper.

Be careful with integers! Remember to distribute first Ex: 2(x - 6) = 2x - 12 Then combine like terms Ex 2x + x = 3x Then solve 2-step equation 2x - 3 = 5 Isolate the x by adding 3 to both sides 2x - 3 + 3 = 5 + 3 Simplify or rename 2x = 8 Divide both sides by 2 2x/2 = 8/2 Simplify or rename x = 4

Check original equation 2x - 3 = 5 for x = 4 2(4) - 3 = 5 8 - 3 = 5 5 = 5
