### Example Question #9 : Two Step Equations With Decimals

Solve the equation for .

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

The correct answer to this question is .

To start, you need to move 's one one side of the equation and numbers to the other side of the equation:

First, you subtract from both sides of the equation. Then, you will have put all of the 's on the same side of the equation:

Next, you add to the left side of the equation to put all of the numbers on the same side of the equation:

Once you do this, you can add the numbers on the left side of the equation together and find that .

### Example Question #10 : Two Step Equations With Decimals

Solve for x:

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

To solve, use inverse opperations: do the opposite steps in the opposite order. Order of opperations is usually PEMDAS, with addition and subtraction last, so we'll do addition/subtraction first:

right now it says to add , so we'll *subtract* it from both sides.

next we will do multiplication/dividion. Right now it is multiplying by , so we will divide both sides by .
