1. Writing & Evaluating Algebraic Expressions for Two-Dimensional Geometric Figures
Learning more about algebraic expressions and geometric figures will help you solve problems that occur in your life. In this lesson, you will use the perimeter of a two-dimensional geometric shape to solve a real-world problem.
2. Writing & Evaluating Real-Life Linear Models: Process & Examples
You make decisions about budgeting and other financial issues using linear models without even realizing it. Learn how to write and evaluate linear models.
3. Applying Systems of Linear Equations to Breakeven Point: Steps & Example
Businesses use breakeven points to determine price and sell products. Learn how to use systems of linear equations with revenue and cost functions to find the breakeven point.
4. Applying Systems of Linear Equations to Market Equilibrium: Steps & Example
Businesses use market equilibrium to determine price and sell products. Learn how to use systems of linear equations to find market equilibrium in this video lesson. Review what you know with a short quiz!
5. Using Quadratic Models to Find Minimum & Maximum Values: Definition, Steps & Example
Minimum and maximum values are found in parabolas that open up or down. In this lesson, learn how to find the minimum and maximum values algebraically and graphically.
