What is a Linear Equation?

1. What is a Linear Equation?

A linear equation is a pattern of numbers with proportional increase or decrease that is used to represent a line graph. Learn how to plot a graph and build and solve a linear equation.

How to Write a Linear Equation

2. How to Write a Linear Equation

Rather than drawing a graph from an equation, graphs can be used to determine equations using common algebraic techniques. Learn how to write a linear equation using two points and the slope formula as well as using background information on parallel and perpendicular lines.

Solving Linear Equations: Practice Problems

3. Solving Linear Equations: Practice Problems

Linear equations are algebraic expressions of a line. Become familiar with recognizing and solving linear equations through examples and practice problems.

Solving Linear Equations with Literal Coefficients

4. Solving Linear Equations with Literal Coefficients

In algebra, literal coefficients are letters or symbols that represent constants and allow us to solve certain linear equations. Learn what literal coefficients are, how they differ from variables, and how to solve literal equations with practice problems.

Problem-Solving using Linear Equations

5. Problem-Solving using Linear Equations

Word problems can be solved after being translated into linear equations. Learn what a linear equation is and how to use it to solve simple problems, and take a look at some real-world practice problems.

What is a System of Equations?

6. What is a System of Equations?

Math word problems often ask students to compare and contrast, which are types of problems that can be solved with a system of equations. Learn about solving word problems using systems of equations and how to graph them, as well as the algebraic method of substitution through an example.

How Do I Use a System of Equations?

7. How Do I Use a System of Equations?

Most word problems that appear on math tests require a system of two or more equations to solve. Through examples, learn how to solve a system of equations with substitution and elimination in three steps.

Solving a System of Equations with Two Unknowns

8. Solving a System of Equations with Two Unknowns

When there are two unknowns presented in a mathematical problem, the system of equations model can be used to solve for both. Through practice, learn how to use the substitution and elimination practices to solve systems of equations for two unknown variables.

Solving Problems Involving Systems of Equations

9. Solving Problems Involving Systems of Equations

Systems of equations are groups of two or more equations that have the same variables. Learn how to solve problems involving systems of equations through counting practice, money practice, and percent practice.

What is an Inequality?

10. What is an Inequality?

An inequality is an equation that uses greater or less than symbols and is helpful in situations with multiple solutions. Explore inequalities, two-variable inequalities, and how to graph two-variable inequalities.

Solving Linear Inequalities: Practice Problems

11. Solving Linear Inequalities: Practice Problems

In mathematics, linear equalities are expressions that compare two values using inequality symbols, such as the symbols for ''less than'' or ''greater than.'' Learn about linear inequalities and learn how to solve them by practicing both basic and advanced problems.
