Studying this chapter can give you a solid grasp of linear equations material. You can discover how to solve a linear system in three variables with a solution. Check your understanding of the Compass Math test topics within the chapter with practice quizzes.

## ACT Compass Math: Linear Equations - Chapter Summary

As the day of the Compass Math test nears, you can prepare for questions that focus on the writing of linear equations. Your understanding of that topic and others will be stronger by completing the video lessons that are led by our professional instructors. Some more lessons you'll come across in the chapter look at the following:

• Definition of a linear equation and a system of equations
• How to use a system of equations
• Abstract algebraic equations
• Solving a system of linear equations in two variables
• Intercepts, standard form and graphing with linear equations
• Solving a linear system in three variables with no or infinite solutions
• Graphing zero and undefined slope

Study the several effective examples in the lesson transcripts as well as in the videos as you go through the chapter. If you want to double-check something after watching a video, you can easily do that with the video tags.

### Objectives of the ACT Compass Math: Linear Equations Chapter

ACT Compass tests are used by colleges to make certain that students are placed in courses at the appropriate levels. The math test assesses your strengths in five content domains, and this chapter's topic falls under the algebra domain. You should expect to see questions that ask about solving linear systems with one or multiple variables. You'll be answering multiple-choice questions on the exam, and the practice questions you can use in this chapter for quick self-assessment have the same format. The test is computer-based and, just as in the case of the chapter's quizzes, you'll be able to see your results after you're done.
