Review Multi-Step Equations:

4x + 2(2x – 1) = 35
Step One: Simplify the equation by applying the distributive property.

Step Two: Combine like terms to further simplify your equation.

Step Three: Solve using two-step rules by using inverse operations to get the variable alone.

2n + 3n + 7 = -41
Step One: Simplify the equation by applying the distributive property.

Step Two: Combine like terms to further simplify your equation.

Step Three: Solve using two-step rules by using inverse operations to get the variable alone.
Steps for Solving Multi-Step Word Problems:
Yellow taxi has no pickup fee but charges 0.25 per mile.
AAA Taxi charges $3 for pickup plus $0.15 per mile. Let m equal the
number of miles, and evaluate when the cost of the taxis are the same.

Step One: Use Notice & Note strategies to translate the word problem into two
algebraic expressions.

Step Two: Use inverse operations to get the variable on one side.

Step Three: Use inverse operations to solve for the variable.

Step Four: Use a written expression to explain what your solution to your equation
means.

Lucky Strike Bowling Alley charges $3 per game plus $10 for the lane.
Spare Me Bowling Alley charges $5 per game plus $6 for the lane. Let g
equal the amount of games, and evaluate how many games each can play
before they pay the same amount at each place.
Step One: Use Notice & Note strategies to translate the word problem into two algebraic
expressions.

Step Two: Use inverse operations to get the variable on one side.

Step Three: Use inverse operations to solve for the variable.

Step Four: Use a written expression to explain what your solution to your equation
means.
