Key Vocabulary/Formulas

Expression & Equation- Expressions don’t have equal signs. Examples: 3, 4x, 5x + 2. Equations have equal signs. Examples: 3 = 4x, 4x = 5x + 2

Solution- The answer to a problem. Example: for 2x = 6, the answer is       x = 3.         *Some equations can have 1, no, or infinite solutions.

Variable- a letter that represents an unknown value, such as x or y

Constant- A quantity that doesn’t change, such as the numbers 2, -5,

  , and 4.27

Combining like terms- Examples: 3x + 7x combines into 10x,  4y – 9y combines into –5y,  3x + 7x + 4y – 9y –15 + 6 combines into 10x – 5y - 9

Distributive Property- Examples: 5(10x – 2) is 5(10x) + 5(-2), which becomes 50x – 10.  -2(3y + 5) is –2(3y) -2(5), which becomes –6y –10.
