To solve a multi-step equation, we would start by trying to simplify the equation by combining like terms and using the distributive property whenever possible.
Consider the equation 2( x + 1) – x = 5. First, we will use the distributive property to remove the parenthesis and then we can combine like terms and the isolate the variable.
Look at the lesson on Solving Multi-Step Equations if you need help on how to solve multi-step equations.
