## Learning Objectives

- Define linear equations.
- Understand how to write linear equations.
- Learn how to solve linear equations.
- Solve linear equations that have literal coefficients.
- Define systems of equations.
- Understand how to use systems of equations.
- Solve systems of equations that have two unknowns.
- Be able to solve problems that have systems of equations.
- Explain what an inequality is.
- Learn how to solve linear inequalities.

### 1. What is a Linear Equation?

Most cars won't be able to run for more than 250,000 miles, so how much longer will your car live? Linear Equations are the most basic kind of algebraic function and can help you answer questions exactly like this. Learn about what they look like, how they come up in your life and why they are powerful tools.

### 2. How to Write a Linear Equation

Simply knowing how to take a linear equation and graph it is only half of the battle. You should also be able to come up with the equation if you're given the right information.

### 3. Solving Linear Equations: Practice Problems

With practice, linear equations can be straightforward to solve. In this lesson, we'll define linear equations and learn how to solve them. We'll look at multiple practice problems and walk through solving each one.

### 4. Solving Linear Equations with Literal Coefficients

In this lesson, we'll literally learn about literal coefficients. We'll look at how to solve linear equations that contain literal coefficients and practice solving several problems.

### 5. 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.

### 6. 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.

### 7. 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.

### 8. 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.

### 9. 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.

### 10. What is an Inequality?

Deciding how to spend your money can be a tricky thing. Should you save it, invest it, or enjoy it? Learn how inequalities can help you make your decision!

### 11. Solving Linear Inequalities: Practice Problems

Linear inequalities may look intimidating, but they're really not much different than linear equations. In this lesson, we'll practice solving a variety of linear inequalities.
