Multi-Step Equations

posted by .

There are not any choices to these so I need help

1. x/4 + 1 = -5

2. 6x + 29 = 5

3. Combine like terms
-21a + 16a

  • Multi-Step Equations -

    The way to do these is to
    1. add and subtract terms to get all the x stuff alone on one side
    2. factor out the x
    3. multiply or divide to get x all alone

    x/4 + 1 = -5
    x/4 = -6
    x = -24

    6x + 29 = 5
    6x = -24
    x = -4

    -21a + 16a
    (-21+16)a
    -5a
