Solving Algebraic Equations: Definition & Examples

1. Solving Algebraic Equations: Definition & Examples

If you shouted, ''Hey! Why are there letters in my math?'' the first time you saw algebra, then you definitely want to check out this lesson where we'll learn why we use letters for mathematics. (Hint: it isn't to drive you crazy.)

How to Solve an Absolute Value Equation

2. How to Solve an Absolute Value Equation

Absolute value equations always yield two different solutions because an absolute value operator is used on the terms of the equation. Explore absolute value equations and discover how to solve equations with absolute values.

Arithmetic Sequence: Formula & Definition

3. Arithmetic Sequence: Formula & Definition

An arithmetic sequence is a list of numbers and can start at any number. Explore the definition of an arithmetic sequence, its general formula, and the nomenclature and how to find it, and also learn how to write the terms and rules within an arithmetic sequence.

Solving Inequalities Using Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication & Division

4. Solving Inequalities Using Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication & Division

Solving inequalities is almost identical to solving equations. By using the inverse operation for the inequality, variables are quickly isolated to find solutions.

The Absolute-Value Inequality: Definition & Example

5. The Absolute-Value Inequality: Definition & Example

Absolute value inequalities are types of problems that may seem complicated from the outset but are relatively simple to solve with the right understanding. Take a closer look at the definitions of the absolute value and the absolute value inequality, followed by an example of how to set up and solve these types of problems.

Solving Word Problems: Steps & Examples

6. Solving Word Problems: Steps & Examples

Solving word problems in math may require following a process that makes it easier to solve. Learn the steps used in solving word problems which include visualizing the problem, writing the equation, and solving the equation with examples of how it's done.
