## What is a 2 step algebraic equation?

A two-step equation is an algebraic equation that takes you two steps to solve. You’ve solved the equation when you get the variable by itself, with no numbers in front of it, on one side of the equal sign.

## How do I check 2 step equations?

To check solutions to two step equations, we put our solution back into the equation and check that both sides equal. If they equal, then we know our solution is correct. If not, then our solution is wrong.

## How do you solve a two step equation with variables on both sides?

Solving Equations with Variables on Both Sides

Step 1: Add and subtract terms to get the variables on one side and the constants on the other. Step 2: Multiply or divide to isolate the variable. Examples: 2x + 7 = 4x â€“ 7.

## How do you remove a fraction from an equation?

To remove fractions: Since fractions are another way to write division, and the inverse of divide is to multiply, you remove fractions by multiplying both sides by the LCD of all of your fractions.

## What is linear equation in one variable with example?

The linear equations in one variable is an equation which is expressed in the form of ax+b = 0, where a and b are two integers, and x is a variable and has only one solution. For example, 2x+3=8 is a linear equation having a single variable in it.

## How do you clear an equation?

Clearing Fractions from an Equation

To clear fractions from an equation, multiply both sides of the equation by the least common denominator.

## What is literal equations in maths?

A literal equation is an equation which consists primarily of letters. Formulas are an example of literal equations. Each variable in the equation “literally” represents an important part of the whole relationship expressed by the equation. For example, The perimeter of a rectangle is expressed as P = 2L + 2W.

## What are 3 examples of literal equations?

Examples of literal equations
• Area of a Rectangle. A = b â‹… h A = b \cdot h A=bâ‹…h.
• Circumference of a Circle. C = Ï€ â‹… D C = \pi \cdot D C=Ï€â‹…D.
• Simple Interest Formula. I = p â‹… r â‹… t I = p \cdot r \cdot t I=pâ‹…râ‹…t.
• Notice how there are two variables in the equation and our ultimate goal is still to isolate x.

## What is an example of a literal equation?

A literal equation is one that has several letters or variables. Examples include the area of a circle (A=Ï€r2) and the formula for speed (v=Dt). In this section we solve literal equations in terms of one variable.
