# Algebra 1 Solving Multi-Step Equations: Combine Like Terms, Distribution, and Combinations of Both to Solve.

Student name:                                       Period:                                     Due Date:

TEKS            b.4.A

Foundations for functions. The student understands the importance of the skills required to manipulate symbols in order to solve problems and uses the necessary algebraic skills required to simplify algebraic expressions and solve equations and inequalities in problem situations. The student is expected to find specific function values, simplify polynomial expressions, transform and solve equations, and factor as necessary in problem situations

b.4.B

Foundations for functions. The student understands the importance of the skills required to manipulate symbols in order to solve problems and uses the necessary algebraic skills required to simplify algebraic expressions and solve equations and inequalities in problem situations. The student is expected to use the commutative, associative, and distributive properties to simplify algebraic expressions.
