Linear Equations: Intercepts, Standard Form and Graphing

1. Linear Equations: Intercepts, Standard Form and Graphing

Do you know what to do if an equation doesn't look like y=mx+b?! If not, then this video is for you. Chances are the equation is in standard form, so we'll learn how to use standard form equations, how to graph them and why they can be helpful.

Equation of a Line Using Point-Slope Formula

2. Equation of a Line Using Point-Slope Formula

It's time for a road trip to Las Vegas, and after four hours of driving at 60 mph ... Are we there yet? Learn the point-slope form of the equation of a line to help answer this age-old question.

Problem solving using Linear Equations

3. Problem solving using Linear Equations

From sale prices to trip distances, many real life problems can be solved using linear equations. In this lesson, we'll practice translating word problems into linear equations, then solving the problems.

What is a System of Equations?

4. 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.

How Do I Use a System of Equations?

5. 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.

Solving a System of Equations with Two Unknowns

6. Solving a System of Equations with Two Unknowns

When you have two variables and two equations, is solving the problem four times as hard? No! Not when you use the substitution or elimination method to solve systems of equations. We'll practice both in this lesson.

Solving Problems Involving Systems of Equations

7. Solving Problems Involving Systems of Equations

Did you ever encounter a problem where you seem to have lots of information, but still have a couple of critical numbers missing? In this lesson, we'll practice solving word problems that require us to set up systems of equations.
