Linear Equations in One Variable

A linear equation in one variable is an equation

that can be written in the form ax b c where

a, b, and c are real numbers and a ? 0.

3x 5 25

The expressions are called the sides of the

equation.

Solutions

The solution of a linear equation is the value or

values of the variable that make the equation a

true statement. The set of all solutions of an

equation is called the solution set. The

solution satisfies the equation.

Example Determine if x 1 is a solution to

the equation.

Solving Equations

Linear equations are solved by writing a series

of steps that result in the equation x a

number One method for solving equations is to

write a series of equivalent equations.

Two or more equations that have precisely the

same solutions are called equivalent equations.

Summary Solving a Linear Equation

Summary Steps for Solving an Equation in

One Variable Step 1 Remove any parentheses

using the Distributive Property. Step 2 Combine

like terms on each side of the equation. Step 3

Use the Addition Property of Equality to get all

variables on one side and all constants on the

other side. Step 4 Use the Multiplication

Property of Equality to get the coefficient of

the variable to equal 1. Step 5 Check the

solution to verify that it satisfies the original

equation.

Solving Problems

Example A Chunky Cheeseburger contains 12 more

grams of fat than a Happy Hamburger. Find the

number of grams of fat in each sandwich if there

are a total of 98 grams of fat in the two

sandwiches by solving the equation x (x 12)

98 where x represents the number of fat grams

in a Happy Hamburger and x 12 represents the

number of fat grams in a Chunky Cheeseburger.

x (x 12) 98

2x 12 98

Simplify.

2x 86

Subtract 12 from both sides.

x 43

Divide both sides by 2.

There are 43 fat grams in a Happy Hamburger and

43 12 55 fat grams in a Chunky Cheeseburger.

Solving Linear Equations Involving Fractions and

Decimals Classifying Equations

- Section 2.3

sides of the equation by the LCD of all the

decimals.

Conditional Equations Contradictions

A conditional equation is an equation that is

true for some values of the variable and false

for other values of the variable.

A contradiction is an equation that is false for

every replacement value of the variable.

Example Solve the equation 4x 8 4x 1.

4x 8 4x 1

8 1

Subtract 4x from both sides.

This is a false statement so the equation is a

contradiction. The solution set is the empty

set, written or ?.

Identities

An identity is an equation that is satisfied for

all values of the variable for which both sides

of the equation are defined.

Example Solve the equation 5x 3 2x 3(x

1).

5x 3 2x 3(x 1).

Distribute to remove parentheses.

5x 3 2x 3x 3

Combine like terms.

5x 3 5x 3

This is a true statement for all real numbers x.

The solution set is all real numbers.

Evaluating Formulas and Solving Formulas for a

Variable

- Section 2.4

Simple Interest

A mathematical formula is an equation that

describes how two or more variables are related.

Interest is money paid for the use of money.

The total amount borrowed is called the principal.

The rate of interest, expressed as a percent, is

the amount charged for the use of the principal

for a given period of time, usually on a yearly

basis.

Simple Interest Formula If an amount of money, P,

called the principal is invested for a period of

t years at an annual interest rate r, expressed

as a decimal, the interest I earned is I

Prt This interest earned is called simple

interest.

Simple Interest

Example Jordan received a bonus check for 1000.

He invested it in a mutual fund that earned

6.75 simple interest. Find the amount of

interest Jordan will earn in two years.

The principal P is 1000.

The interest rate r is 6.75

The time t is 2.

Use the simple interest formula to solve the

problem

I Prt

(1000)(0.0675)(2)

135

Jordan will earn 135 interest at the end of two

years.

Geometric Formulas

Definitions The perimeter is the sum of the

lengths of all the sides of a figure. The area is

the amount of space enclosed by a two-dimensional

figure measured in square units. The surface area

of a solid is the sum of the areas of the

surfaces of a three-dimensional figure. The

volume is the amount of space occupied by a

figure measured in cubic units. The radius r of a

circle is the line segment that extends from the

center of the circle to any point on the

circle. The diameter of a circle is any line

segment that extends from one point on the circle

through the center to a second point on the

circle. The diameter is two times the length of

the radius, d 2r. In circles, we use the term

circumference to mean the perimeter.

empty can for her mothers birthday. She has 157

cubic inches of soil to use. Find the radius of

the can if it has a height of 8 inches.

Problem Solving

Problem solving is the ability to use

information, tools, and our own skills to achieve

a goal.

The process of taking a verbal description of the

problem and developing it into an equation that

can be used to solve the problem is mathematical

modeling.

The equation that is developed is the

mathematical model.

Categories of Problems

- Direct Translation problems that must be

translated from English into mathematics using

key words in the verbal description - Mixtures problems where two or more quantities

are combined in some fashion - Geometry problems where the unknown quantities

are related through geometrical formulas - Uniform Motion problems where an object travels

at a constant speed - Work problems problems where two or more

entities join forces to complete a job
