LINEAR EQUATIONSAlgebraEquate these two products and solve the resulting equation.6x = 66x666x = 1The unit of x is cups. Thus, servings for 4 people require 1 cup offlour.SummaryThe important information in this chapter is summarized below.Linear Equations SummaryThere are four axioms used in solving linear equations.Axiom 1. If the same quantity is added to both sidesof an equation, the resulting equation is stilltrue.Axiom 2. If the same quantity is subtracted from bothsides of an equation, the resulting equationis still true.Axiom 3. If both sides of an equation are multipliedby the same quantity, the resulting equationis still true.Axiom 4. If both sides of an equation are divided bythe same quantity, except 0, the resultingequation is still true.Axiom 1 is called the addition axiom; Axiom 2, the subtraction axiom; Axiom3, the multiplication axiom; and Axiom 4, the division axiom.MA-02 Page 16 Rev. 0
