Hello classmates my name is Josh if you didn't already know that by now (

**(╯°□°）╯︵ ┻━┻**I'm done...), so anyways ill be telling you what we did in class which is 2 step algebra word problems.
Ill be using word problem questions 2 and 9 like the ones we did in class but ill put

**ONE**into steps to make it more clear and simple.
(for the people who doesn't know how to make the word problem, well here you go)

#2) Five more than one third of a number is -2. Find the number

**Step 1. Highlight the question that is telling you.**

Five more than one third of a number is -2. Find the number

**Step 2. Write the blank sentence.**

Five more than one third of a number is -2. Find the number

The number is ____.

**Step 3. Write the "Let x" (lettuce)" statement below the blank sentence.**

Five more than one third of a number is -2. Find the number

Let x = the number.

**Step 4. Highlight all the math words.**

Five more than one third of a number is -2. Find the number

Let x = the number.

**Step 5. Write down the math words you've highlighted.**

Five more than one third of a number is -2. Find the number

Let x = the number.

5 More (+5)

__1__of a number

3

is -2 (= -2)

**Step 6. Write it in a 2 step equation formation.**

Five more than one third of a number is -2. Find the number

Let x = the number.

5 More (+5)

__1__x +5 = -2

__1__of a number 3

3

is -2 (= -2)

**Step 7. Solve the equation your own style(ex. right hand side solving).**

Five more than one third of a number is -2. Find the number

Let x = the number.

5 More (+5)

__1x__

__1__of a number 3 = 3(-7)

3 = -21

is -2 (= -2)

**Step 8. Verify your answer and put the isolated variable in the blank sentence.**

Five more than one third of a number is -2. Find the number

__-21____.

Let x = the number.

5 More (+5)

~~ 1~~x

__x__+5 = -2

__1__of a number 3 = 3(-7) 3

3 = -21

__(-21)__+5 = -2

is -2 (= -2) 3 -7 +5 = -2

-2 = -2

#9) The length of a rectangle is 50 meters. This is 6 meters more than twice the width. Find the width.

The length of a rectangle is 50 meters. This is 6 meters more than twice the width. Find the width.

The width is _

__22m___

__m__.

Let w = the width.

twice width (+)6m = Length

50m = length

__2w__+6m = 50m-6m 2w +6m = 50m

6m more (+6) 2 =

__44m__2(22m)+6m= 50m

Twice the width (2w) 2 44m +6m= 50

= 22m

Hopefully the people who don't get the right hand side solving I am sorry but you can do what ever you want other than that, also thank you for the people who will or I mean

**SHOULD**comment on my scribe post so thanks. ( ͡°╭͜ʖ╮͡° )( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)( ͡°╭͜ʖ╮͡° )

great post, the picture at the beginnings a bit blurry. good examples and you did a awesome job at explaining!

ReplyDeleteGreat Scribe Post Josh. You have everything in your Scribe Post for it to be successful but I think you went a little overboard on your highlighting. Besides that you did a fantastic job.

ReplyDeleteGreat Job Josh! a lot of vibrant color, I understand this well step by step. The picture at the beginning was a bit blurry,but still well done.

ReplyDeleteawesome job de castro !! amazing job on explaining the steps but could have used less highlighting, you feel ?? but fantastic job nonetheless !!

ReplyDeletethe way you explained the topic of your scribe was great! and i like the amount of color you put into it-showing that those are the key words to keep in mind when doing these kind of equations. good job!
