# Ways of Thinking: Make Connections

Take notes about your classmates’ equations, estimates, and solutions.

## Hint:

As your classmates present, ask questions such as:

- How did you come up with your estimate?
- How close is your estimate to the final solution?
- How did you decide which quantity in the problem should be represented by the variable?
- Can you explain the steps you used to solve the equation?
- Does the solution to the equation make sense in terms of the problem situation?
- Why do you sometimes need to use both the addition property of equality and the multiplication property of equality to solve equations?
