Please pick 5 questions from the list below.  Solve those 5 problems, showing your work, and submit them to your Individual Forum.

Problem Set 1 (choose one)
Solve for x or y -
1.    2x+10= -5+x                        2. 13-3+9x=10x
3.    2(10-2x)= -3x                       4.  -18=5(10-x)+6x
5.    x=2x-1                                6.  5*4(x)-22= 10(1+2x)-x
7.    y + (7/11) = 7/11                  8.  -3x-5+4x = 9

1. 2x+10=-5+x
2x-x+10=-5+x-x
x+10=-5
-10 from each side
x=-15

Problem Set 2 (choose one)
Solve for x or y-
1.    8x=4                                    2.    12x=12
3.    -7x=14                                 4.    -18x= -24
5.    x/5 = 3                                 6.    .05y - 9 = 6
1. 8x=4 (divide both sides by 8)
x=4/8 (reduce the fraction)
x=1/2

Problem Set 3 (choose one)
Solve for x-
1.    .5x + 10 - x = 30                   2.    (x/3) - (2/4) = 12
3.    .025 - .025x + 1/2 = 4            4.    2( 2/8 - x) + 4x/5 = -5
5.    (1/7)x+(1/5)x = 1

1. 0.5x+10-x=30 (simplify what we can by combining like terms)
10-0.5x=30 (subtract ten from both sides)
-0.5x=20 (divide by -0.5)
x=-40

Problem Set 4 (choose ...
