## Description

This lesson helps students with basic algebraic equations by presenting a word problem, translating it to an equation, and uses a model to help solve the equation. The lesson begins with the problem: The sum of two numbers is 148. The larger number is 16 more than twice the smaller number. What are the two numbers? A video then walks students through generating and solving the equation. Students then solve a similar problem on their own. A handy virtual calculator and scratch pad are available for students to use as they solve. Less
