# 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

Ok Thanks!
