### 2.4 Solving Equations w/Variables on each sides

Standard(s):

• A.REI.A.1: Explain each step in solving a simple equation as following from the equality of numbers asserted at the previous step, starting from the assumption that the original equation has a solution. Construct a viable argument to justify a solution method.
• A.REI.B.3: Solve linear equations and inequalities in one variable, including equations with coefficients represented by letters.

Essential Question:

• In what ways can the problem be solved, and why should one method be chosen over another?

Learning Target:

• I can solve equations containing like terms. (Application)
• I can solve equations with variables on both sides of the equal sign. (Application)
• I can solve equations that require the use of the distributive property. (Application)
