How to Solve One-Step Equations

## Practice Problems

**1) **Solve for [latex]x[/latex].

[latex]x – 23 = 8[/latex]

## Answer

Add both sides of the equation by [latex]23[/latex].

**2) **Solve for [latex]n[/latex].

[latex]n + 2 = 9[/latex]

## Answer

Subtract both sides of the equation by [latex]2[/latex].

**3) **Solve for [latex]k[/latex].

[latex]9k = – 27[/latex]

## Answer

Divide both sides by [latex]9[/latex].

**4) **Solve for [latex]a[/latex].

[latex]{\Large{a \over 2}} = 6[/latex]

## Answer

Multiply both sides by [latex]2[/latex].

**5) **Solve for [latex]y[/latex].

[latex]y + {\large{1 \over 4}} = {\large{1 \over 2}}[/latex]

## Answer

Subtract both sides by [latex]\large{1 \over 4}[/latex].

**6) **Solve for [latex]m[/latex].

[latex]0.25\,m = 2[/latex]

## Answer

Divide both sides of the equation by [latex]0.25[/latex].

**7) **Solve for [latex]d[/latex].

[latex]{\Large{2 \over 3}}d = 10[/latex]

## Answer

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

**8) **Solve for [latex]r[/latex].

[latex]{\Large{r \over {0.5}}} = 30[/latex]

## Answer

Multiply both sides by the decimal number [latex]0.5[/latex].
