## Solving Equations - Variables both Sides - Distributive Property Worksheet

This free algebra worksheet includes problems on solving equations. The worksheet begins by reviewing the steps for solving an equation, multiplication of fractions review, and a number of equations which range from simple one-step equations to equations with variables on both sides that require the use of the distributive property and combining like terms.

## Lesson:

3. To solve one-step equations and review steps for solving equations.

Steps for Solving Equations
1. Remove Parenthesis
2. Combine Like Terms (on both sides of equal sign)
3. Move variable to one side
5. Undo Multiplication and/or Division
** If the variable cancels out, the equation will either be an Identity (meaning that its true for ALL values of the variable), or it will have No Solution.

Stuff I’m supposed to know….
1.  1/6 • 48

Solve. SHOW WORK!
7. 3x = 18

14. 3x – 9 = 3(x – 3)

15. –7 + 9(y + 2) = 4y – 2(4 – 3y)
