Section 1:

Chapter 5.3 Simple Fractional Equations

Chapter 5.4 Forming Linear Equations to Solve Problems

1. Fractional equation: when the variable of an equation is in the denominations of a term, the equation is called fractional equation

6 /(x – 2) = 3

1/(x + 3) = 2/x

Note: it is important to check the solutions, that they can’t be those values that make a denominator of the original equation zero.

2. Constructing/Forming Linear Equations to Solve Problems

Two pages handout of teaching material. The steps involved in problem solving with linear equations are:

• Step 1. Read the question carefully and identify the unknown quantity
• Step 2. Use a letter to represent the unknown quantity (e.g. x)
• Step 3. Express other quantities in terms of x
• Step 4. Construct/Form an equation based on the given information
• Step 5. Solve the equation
• Step 6. Write down the answer statement

3. Review basic concept of “open parenthesis”

• 2(3x+y) – 5(0.2x-0.6y) =
• -2(3x+y) + 5(0.2x-0.6y) =
• -2(3x-y) + 5(-0.2x-0.6y) =
• 2(3x-y) – 5(0.2x+0.6y) =
