## Objective:

**Use techniques to solve equations.**

## 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).
- At the same time:
- Locate the variable term on the right side of the equation and do the "opposite" operation to eliminate it from the right side.
- Locate the variable term on the left side of the equation and do the "opposite" operaton to eliminate it from the left side.

***Make sure you line up like terms.

- Now, isolate the variable by using an "opposite" operation or multiply by the reciprocal. Again WYDTOS, DITTO!
- Simplify and circle your answer
