#### COURSE DESCRIPTION

**Common Core State Standards for Linear Functions **

NC.8.EE.7

Solve real-world and mathematical problems by writing and solving equations and inequalities in one variable.

- Recognize linear equations in one variable as having one solution, infinitely many solutions, or no solutions.
- Solve linear equations and inequalities including multi-step equations and inequalities with the same variable on both sides

**Link to Prior Learning from a prior lesson in the series:**

Addition and Subtraction are inverses of each other

Multiplication and Division are inverses of each other

**Purpose/Objective of the Lesson:**

Students will be able to utilize the inverse properties previously learned to find solutions to an equation.
