2.1.4 Solving Multi-Step Equations − Practice

1. Solve 44 c + 6 − 41 c = 12.

2. Solve.

3 y − 1 − 9 y = 29

3. Solve.

4. Solve.

6. Solve the equation. a − (10 − a ) = 30

5. Solve the equation. 2( a − 4) = 20

( Hint: Rewrite a − (10 − a ) as a + − 1(10 − a ) and then use the Distributive Property to simplify.)

8. Jessie bought 4 balls of wool to knit sweaters for her children, and 5 balls of wool for herself. Then she spent $9.45 on knitting accessories. The total cost of the wool and the accessories was $28.71. Write and solve an equation to find the cost of each ball of wool.

7. If 3 x − (7 − x ) = 29, find the value of 6 x . ( Hint: Rewrite 3 x − (7 − x ) as 3 x + − 1(7 − x ) and then use the Distributive Property to simplify.) 9. Juan needs to take a taxi to get to the movies. The taxi charges $3.50 for the first mile, and then $2.75 for each mile after that. If the total charge is $18.63, then how far was Juan’s taxi ride to the movie?
