# Solving Multi-Step Equations

## Exercise 1.3

### Solution

a
First, we add to both sides. That leaves us with alone on the left-hand side. From here, we'll divide by to isolate for
b
Solve for by adding to both sides and then divide by
c
Subtract in order to get the -term by itself on the right-hand side of the equation.

### Hint

a

Use inverse operations on both sides in order to get the variable by itself on one side.

b

Use inverse operations on both sides in order to get the variable by itself on one side.

c

Use inverse operations on both sides in order to get the variable by itself on one side.
