Multi-Step Equations

Solving Equations with Variables on Both Sides

1) 5y + 4 = 4y + 5

11a + 9 = 4a + 30

2w + 3 = 4w - 5

2) 3a - 10 = 4 + a

2x - 1 = x - 3

6n + 4 = n - 11

3) 29r + 4 = 28 + 13r

7x - 11 = -19 + 3x

4) b + 3 = 2b - 7

I'm having a bit trouble and really confused with the problems. I'm NOT asking you to do this homework for me because that would wrong and I won't learn anything. Can you do #1, 2, 3, and 4 for me for I can do the problems below it since it's similar to them.

1)

5y + 4 = 4y + 5

5y - 4y = 5 - 4

y = 1

2)

3a - 10 = 4 + a

3a - a = 4 + 10

2a = 14

a = 2

3)

29r + 4 = 28 + 13r

29r - 13r = 28 - 4

16r = 24

r = 24/16 = 1 8/16 = 1 1/2

thanks

2w + 3 = 4w - 5

4w - 2w = 3 + 5

2w = 8/2

w = 4

am i correct????

2x - x = 3 - 1

1x = 2/1

x = 2
