Join Karin Hutchinson for an indepth discussion in this video Challenge: Solve multistep equations with the distributive property, part of Foundations of Algebra: Solving Equations.
 Your next challenge will be to solve equations…with a distributive property.…Your first job will be to open Worksheet number 6.…Once you've printed this worksheet,…you can begin to solve all five equations.…Don't forget that your first job…is to remove all parenthesis by using…the distributive property.…Then, if you have any like terms,…you can combine those like terms…before you begin solving the equation.…And lastly, don't forget…to check your solutions by subsituting your answer…back into the original equation.…
These five problems should take you about…15 minutes to complete.…Once you're finished, don't forget to check out…the solution video,…where I will walk you step by step…through every problem.…
