# Solving Two-Step Equations

## The algorithm for solving two-step equations may also be used to solve two-step inequalities.

**2**

**x**

**+ 8**

**= 28**(co-efficient) (variable) (constant) 2x+8=28 Step 1 - Add the opposite of the constant to both sides of the equation. 2x + 8 = 28 +

__(-8)__+

__(-8)__2x = 20 Step 2 - Divide both sides of the equation by the co-efficient.

__2x__=

__20__2 2 x = 10 Your solution!
