MA.6.AR.2.2

Write and solve one-step equations in one variable within a mathematical or real-world context using addition and subtraction, where all terms and solutions are integers.

Examples

The equations -35+x=17, 17=-35+x and 17-x=-35 can represent the question “How many units to the right is 17 from -35 on the number line?”

Clarifications

Clarification 1: Instruction includes using manipulatives, drawings, number lines and inverse operations.

Clarification 2: Instruction includes equations in the forms x+p=q and p+x=q, where x,p and q are any integer.

Clarification 3: Problems include equations where the variable may be on either side of the equal sign.
