Objective
The student will be able to:
solve two-step equations.
Designed by Skip Tyler, Varina High School
To solve two-step equations, undo the
operations by working backwards.
x
Example:
 3  7

1. What is the first thing
we are doing to x?
2. What is the second
thing?
Recall the order of
operations as you
• Dividing by 2
• Subtracting 3
To undo these steps, do the opposite operations in opposite order.
