What is a System of Equations?

1. What is a System of Equations?

So what happens if we want to compare more than one equation? Welcome to a 'system' of equations! Learn what one is, how to solve them and when they come up in real life.

Classifying Linear Systems in Math

2. Classifying Linear Systems in Math

After watching this video lesson, you'll understand how to classify linear systems and the reasons why a linear system's classification is dependent on the number of solutions it has.

How Do I Use a System of Equations?

3. How Do I Use a System of Equations?

There are a few classic algebra word problems, such as the one about two trains traveling at different speeds. In this lesson, you'll learn how to take a word problem and convert it into the system of equations that will allow you to find the answer using either substitution or elimination.

Set Notation, Compound Inequalities, and Systems of Inequalities

4. Set Notation, Compound Inequalities, and Systems of Inequalities

In this lesson, we'll explore the conditions of compound inequalities and learn how to express them using set notation and interval notation. Test you knowledge afterward with a short quiz.

Graphing the Feasible Region of a System of Inequalities

5. Graphing the Feasible Region of a System of Inequalities

The feasible region of a system of inequalities is the area of the graph containing the points that satisfy all the inequalities at once. Watch this lesson to learn how to graph one.

Evaluating Parametric Equations: Process & Examples

6. Evaluating Parametric Equations: Process & Examples

After watching this video lesson, you will be able to evaluate a parametric equation for any given parameter. Learn the steps involved and what the complete answer looks like.
