## Description

- Overview:
- Students extend what they learned about solving equations in Grade 6. They learn to solve equations that require them to use both the addition and the multiplication properties of equality. They use what they know about solving equations such as 2x = 6 and x + 3 = 7 to solve equations such as 2x + 3 = 8. They connect solving problems using arithmetic to solving problems using equations. They solve equations containing both positive and negative rational numbers.Key ConceptsAddition property of equality: If a = b, then a + c = b + c.Multiplication property of equality: If a = b, then ac = bc.For any equation, add or subtract the same value from both sides of the equation and the equation will still be true.For any equation, multiply or divide both sides of the equation by the same value and the equation will still be true.In this lesson, students use both properties to solve equations. They then solve equations that contain both positive and negative rational numbers.Goals and Learning ObjectivesSolve equations using both the addition and multiplication properties of equality.Relate solving problems using arithmetic to solving problems using equations.Solve equations containing both positive and negative rational numbers.
