## High School Algebra: Linear Equations - Chapter Summary

Believe it or not, we use algebra throughout our daily routines, including when we cook, when we make our schedules, and even when we go shopping, so having a basic comprehension of algebraic formulas could help you make better real-life decisions. In these lessons, you will find out about linear equations, including the purpose of these equations, how to write them, graphing procedures, and more.

To make sure you understand this topic, try answering the questions on the lesson quizzes. Most of our quizzes include at least five selected-response questions, and you will have to know specific information about any given topic, such as definitions, formulas, concept applications, and terminology. Our quizzes are available around the clock online, and you have the option to print the quiz worksheets. Upon completing this chapter, you will have the ability to do the following:

• Describe a linear equation and a system of equations
• Identify how the distributive property of linear equations is applied
• Analyze the graphing, standard form, and intercepts of linear equations
• Check out examples about abstract algebraic equations
