Hands – On Equations -- Lesson #6

Objective: The students learn that the number outside the parenthesis tells us how many times the expression
inside the parenthesis is set up on the balance scale. (distributive law)

Use your Hands-On Equations Kit to solve:

1. 2(x + 3) = 10 x= Check: _______________________

2. 2(x + 3) = 9 + x x= Check: _______________________

3. 2(2x + 1) = 3x + 8 x= Check: _______________________

4. 2(2x + 3) = x + 9 x= Check: _______________________

PRACTICE (Exit Ticket)

1. x= Check: _______________________

2. x= Check: _______________________

3. 5x + 2 = 3x + 12 x= Check: _______________________

4. 2x+1+x+4+x+16+x x= Check: ___________________

5. 5x –3x+x+8 = 2x+1+x+x x = Check: ___________________

6. 2(x + 4) = x + 10 x= Check: _______________________
