The Addition Property for Equations states that the same number

can be added to or subtracted from each side of the equation without changing

the solution to the equation.

**Example 1: **

Solve for **k**: -15 = 48 + **k**

** Solution:
**

Isolate the k-term by cancelling the 48

from the right side of the equation.

-15 = 48 + **k **

__-48__ __-48__

-63 = **k **

**Example 2: **

Solve for *c*:

** Solution: **

Isolate the *c* -term

by cancelling from the left

side of the equation.

The constants cancel on the left side of

the equation. Write each fraction on the right side of the equation using the

common denominator: 6

The solution to is .

Solve for x. 12 + x = 8

Solve for Q: -14 = Q - 16

0 out of 0 correct.
