2. Writing and Solving Multi-Step Equations We are learning to…write and solve equations which involve more than one step to solve. Friday, August 8, 2014

3. The number of boys on the chess team is one more than twice the number of girls. If there are 5 boys on the team, how many girls are there? Verbal Model: Define the variable(s): boys girls + 1 (2) = x = the number girls on the chess team Mathematical Representation (as an equation): 2x + 1 = 5 Record your steps: 1 x 1 1 1 1 x = 1 Check your work: 1 1

4. Tito’s age is 4, which is 2 less than one-third of Harry’s age. How old is Harry? Verbal Model: Define the variable(s): Harry x = Harry’s age - 2 Tito = Mathematical Representation (as an equation): Solve this equation with your teammates…raise your hand when you are done.

5. A Pizza Shop sells pizza for \$8 plus \$2 per topping. If Ben spent \$16 on a pizza how many toppings did he get on his pizza? Verbal Model: Define the variable(s): (2) Toppings x = Number of Toppings + 8 Total Cost = Mathematical Representation (as an equation): Solve this equation with your teammates…raise your hand when you are done.

6. Team Practice • With your team practice: • Finding key words. • Writing a verbal model. • Defining a variable. • Writing an equation. • And finally solving the equation.
