## Objective:

**To solve more complex equations systematically.**

## Vocabulary:

**WYDTOS, DITTO**- What you do to one side, do it to the other.**Isolate**- Get it by itself.**Inverse operations**- The opposite operation.

## Notes:

For each of your homework problems, do the following:- Simplify each side of the equation (if needed).
- Locate the term with the variable and circle it
- Look at the side with the variable. Do the opposite of whatever is not circled. Remember WYDTOS, DITTO! This should isolate the term with the variable.
- Now, isolate the variable by using an inverse operation or multiply by the reciprocal. Again, WYDTOS, DITTO.
- implify and circle your answer.
