To solve equations with variables on both sides, move the constants to the right side of the equation, simplify, move the variables to the left side and simplify. If the variable is negative, multiply both sides by -1 to... More »

Multistep equations with variables on both sides include 4x + 3 = 8x + 6, 2y + 7 = 4y - 2, 2x + 3y = 4(x - 1) + 2y and 3z(x + 4) = 2z + 3xy. Each equation is solved by moving terms from one side of the equal sign to the ... More »

The four steps for solving an equation include the combination of like terms, the isolation of terms containing variables, the isolation of the variable and the substitution of the answer into the original equation to ch... More »

To solve one-step equations, perform the correct mathematical operation to get the variable by itself, and perform the same operation on the other side of the equation. Solve the equation when the variable is by itself. More »

The graph of a linear equation forms a straight line, while a non-linear equation's graph does not form a straight line.Most equations can be graphed on a Cartesian coordinate plane using the variables x and y. More »

To solve the slope of 3x + 2y = 8, the equation must first be put into slope intercept form with y on the left side and the remaining numbers on the right side. It can be transformed to 2y = -3x + 8, which will then be s... More »
