Chapter 2: Solving Equations – From One-Step to Multi-Step
This chapter explores how to solve equations and why the solution processes make sense in great depth. You will first learn how to solve one-step equations involving all four operations and all types of real numbers – integers, fractions, and decimals. With this solid foundation you will then master solving two-step and multi-step equations, all the while translating and crushing word problems involving these equation types. The chapter rounds out with a thorough exploration of solving equations with variables on both sides of the equal sign and a world tour of solving literal equations (equations involving many different variables!). Time to rock these fundamentals of Algebra!!
