Hey guys my name is Nicholas and im going to show you how to do Two step Algebra Equations. So today I am doing um 3 examples, these questions are from "Why did Gonzo walk around carrying ice cream and a pair of sparrows?"

Questions

12. a/2+8=50

6. x\7-8=-10

11. x\10 -11 = 10

So what you want to do here is to rewrite the question first. second you need to reverse the operations. Then you minus or add on both sides. So to undo the division we need to multiply on both sides as well. Now here is the questions. And also don't forget to do your let statements.

a\2+8=50 Verify

a\2+8-8=50-8 a\2 + 8 = 50 50 = 50

(2)a/2=42(2) 21\2 + 8 = 50

a=21 42 + 8 = 50

x\7 -8= -10 x\7 -8 = -10 -10 = -10

x\7-8+8 = -10 + 8 -14\7 -8 = -10

(7)x\7 = -2 (7) -2 - 8 = -10

x = -14

-x\10 -11 = 10 - x\10 -11 =10 10 = 10

-x\10 -11 + 11 = 10 + 11 -2 10/ 10 - 11 =110

-(10)x\10 = 21(10) 21 - 11 = 10

x=210

So as you can see that I reversed the operations and minus or add both sides so I hope that this can help you a lot im sorry if this didn't help you because honestly I find it hard to explain this. I suck :(.

Let me know if I forgot anything so I'll be more prepared at explaining this in the future.

Here is a video of explaining how to do this. Like A BETTER way than how I say or write it.

don't worry Nick, you actually did a pretty great on your scibe post! :)

ReplyDeletethe colours was a great touch and I was able to understand the post pretty well. although, I think you could've explained the equations step-by-step rather than explaining it in one paragraph.

Good job nick! your scribe post is far from 'sucking' you explained the equation very well and you used a good amount of colour. Keep up the good work!

ReplyDeleteawesome job nick!! great job explaining how to solve. its short and sweet ((: and good use of colour !!
