Problem 1 :
Use algebra tiles to model and solve 3n + 2 = 11.
Problem 2 :
Use algebra tiles to model 2x - 3 = 5.
You can use the following algebra tiles to model and solve two-step equations.
Problem 1 :
Use algebra tiles to model and solve 3n + 2 = 11.
Solution :
Step 1 :
How can we model the left side of the equation ?
We find 3n + 2 on the left side of the equation. So we can use three positive variable tiles and two +1 tiles to model the left side of the equation.
Step 2 :
How can we model the right side of the equation ?
We find positive 11 on the right side of the equation. So we can use eleven +1 tiles to model the right side of the equation.
Step 3 :
Now use the above mentioned algebra tiles or draw them to model the equation on the mat.
Step 4 :
Remove two +1 tiles from each side of the mat.
Step 5 :
Divide each side into 3 equal groups.
Step 6 :
The solution is n = 3.
Problem 2 :
Use algebra tiles to model 2x - 3 = 5.
Solution :
Step 1 :
How can we model the left side of the equation ?
We find 2x - 3 on the left side of the equation. So we can use two positive variable tiles and three -1-tiles to model the left side of the equation.
Step 2 :
How can we model the right side of the equation ?
We find positive 5 on the right side of the equation. So we can use five +1 tiles to model the right side of the equation.
Step 3 :
Now use the above mentioned algebra tiles or draw them to model the equation on the mat.
Step 4 :
Add three +1 tiles on each side of the mat.
Step 5 :
Identify and remove zero pairs on each side of the mat.
Step 6 :
Divide each side into 2 equal groups.
Step 7 :
The solution is x = 4.
