13.3 Solving two-step linear equations using multiplication and division: xa+b=c\frac{x}{a} + b = c

Solving two-step linear equations using multiplication and division: xa+b=c\frac{x}{a} + b = c

Continue from the previous section, we will solve linear equations in diagram, equation, and word problems forms. However, in addition to subtraction and addition, we will teach you how to solve linear equations that also involve multiplications and divisions.

Lessons

  • 1.
    Find x in the equation modelled by each diagram.
  • 2.
    Solve.
  • 3.
    The amount of time needed for an ice cube to melt when the temperature is between 10 °C to 30 °C can be expressed by the equation t=16C2t = 16 - \frac{C}{2}, where t is the amount of time for the ice cube to melt in minute; and C is the temperature in degree Celsius.
