How to Solve One-Step Equations

## Practice Problems

**1) **Solve for x.

x - 23 = 8

## Answer

Add both sides of the equation by 23.

**2) **Solve for n.

n + 2 = 9

## Answer

Subtract both sides of the equation by 2.

**3) **Solve for k.

9k = - 27

## Answer

Divide both sides by 9.

**4) **Solve for a.

{\Large{a \over 2}} = 6

## Answer

Multiply both sides by 2.

**5) **Solve for y.

y + {\large{1 \over 4}} = {\large{1 \over 2}}

## Answer

Subtract both sides by \large{1 \over 4}.

**6) **Solve for m.

0.25\,m = 2

## Answer

Divide both sides of the equation by 0.25.

**7) **Solve for d.

{\Large{2 \over 3}}d = 10

## Answer

Multiply both sides of the equation by the reciprocal of the coefficient. The coefficient is \large{{2 \over 3}}, therefore the reciprocal is \large{{3 \over 2}}.

**8) **Solve for r.

{\Large{r \over {0.5}}} = 30

## Answer

Multiply both sides by the decimal number 0.5.
