### Dilly's Scribbles via Harbeck

Well mabck in the day, we learned how to solve equations. First Mr. P taught us how to do one step equations with adding, subtracting multiplying and dividing.Adding 4 + x = 20

4 + x -4 = 20 -4

x = 16

Subtracting x - 5 = 2

x - 5 +5 = 2 +5

x = 7

Multiplying 3x = 24

3x/3 = 24/3

x = 8

Division x/7 = 6

(7)x/7 = (7)6

x = 42

He also told us that when you do 2 or more step equations we isolate the variable and use coefficient first ( aka reverse order of operations)

7x + 9 = 30

7x + 9 -9 = 30 -9

7x = 21

7x/7 = 21/7

x=3

The next scribe is Kim
