## 8th Grade Notes

**The last lesson we completed at school was Lesson 8-2, Solving Two-Step Equations. Let's Review.**

To solve any equation that involves a variable the goal is to:

Isolate the variable.

The golden rule of solving equations is:

What you do to one side of the equation you must do to the other.

Solving a Two-Step Equation:

1. Undo the addition or subtraction.

2. Undo the multiplication or division.

Lesson 8-4 More Two-Step Equations

Sometimes Two-Step Equations will include a set of parenthesis. If you encounter a 2-step equation that has a set of parenthesis you should first clear the parenthesis by using the Distributive Property, then complete the 2-step equation.

Lesson 8-5 Solving Equations with Variables on Each Side

So now we have variables on each side, what is up with this. Your goal is still the same, Isolate The Variable. The Golden Rule is still the same, What you do to one side of an equation you must do to the other side. Now that you have variables on both sides and constants on both sides you must do some rearranging. I would suggest that until you get better at this, that you always move the variables to the left and the constants to the right. It is what I would do if I were you, but I am not you.
