Algebra I Exercises: Shortcuts For Solving Equations With Fractions and Decimals

Companion Recipe Review Course Notes

If your answer can be put in the form of a fraction, do so. If it can not, round your answer to the nearest thousandth.

Question Group #1
Directions and/or Common Information: Solve each equation using the shortcuts from section 3.5


(5/6)x = 2
1. 





(2/6)x + 5 = (1/3)x
2. 





(7/3)x + (5/2) = 9/3
3. 





2[(4/3) - x] + 6 = 7/8
4. 





3[5x - (1/4)] = 9
5. 





(1/4)x - (7/2) = 2[(1/4)x + 3]
6. 




Question Group #2
Directions and/or Common Information: Solve each equation using the shortcuts in section 3.5


5.4x + 3 = 42
1. 





1.383x + 5.6 = 8.5
2. 





1.5 - 7.93x = 4.27(x - 5.93)
3. 





4.08(1.55 + 3.8x) - 2.8402 = 0.114x
4. 





0.129 - 5.38(0.772x + 3) = 0.6619
5.
