Solving 2-Step Equations
3y + 12 = 252

Goal:
Isolate the variable
3y + 12 = 252
Goal:
Isolate the variable
3y + 12 = 252
Use Inverse Operations
Add when equation subtracts
Subtract when equation adds
Multiply when equation divides
Divide when equation multiplies
-12
-12
Goal:
Isolate the variable
Simplify
Combine like terms
Remember order of operations:

3y + 0 = 240
Goal:
Isolate the variable
3y = 240
Use Inverse Operations
