Solving equations by Isha Sharma How to solve equations by grouping like terms and unlike terms and then simplifying them. Like and Unlike terms When first looking at an equation, figure out which are the like terms and which are unlike terms. 5x + 1 = 4x + 2 Like Terms Like Terms Simplifying After eliminating the zero pairs, keep simplifying by performing the 4 operations until you get the finale answer. Eliminating zero pairs by adding or subtracting After identifying the like and unlike terms, eliminate the zero pairs by either adding or subtracting the variable, depending on the sign 5x + 1 = 4x + 2 -4x -4x x + 1 = 2 5x + 1 = 4x + 2 - 4x -4x x + 1 = 2 = -1 -1 = x = 1 /1 /1 = x = 1 Checking your answer After getting the value of x, check your answer, whether is it correct or incorrect, by plugging in the variable's value 5(1) + 1 = 4(1) + 2 5 + 1 = 4 + 2 6 = 6 Video
