- Define the linear equation and discuss its relationship with intercepts and standard form
- Understand abstract algebraic examples and how to go from a graph to a rule
- Show how to graph undefined slope, zero slope and more
- Write a linear equation
- Solve linear equations with literal coefficients
- Use linear equations to problem solve

The resources in this chapter make it easy for you to study for the exam in the manner and at the pace you prefer. Access lessons as entertaining videos with fun visual and audio effects or full transcripts with easily identifiable vocabulary words. Review them any time and in any sequence you desire. To test your knowledge of linear equations, take the lesson quizzes in this chapter. A practice chapter exam is also available to strengthen your comprehension of lesson concepts.

### 1. What Are the Different Parts of a Graph?

Being able to read a graph isn't just vital for an algebra class. Graphs and charts are used everywhere! We'll take a crash course on the basic x/y plane used in algebra and the fundamental vocab you need.

### 2. 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.

### 3. 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.

### 4. Abstract Algebraic Examples and Going from a Graph to a Rule

Just because you now know what a linear equation is doesn't mean that you are a master! This video will help you learn how to apply your knowledge of linear equations in more abstract algebraic ways.

### 5. Graphing Undefined Slope, Zero Slope and More

There are two special cases when it comes to slopes on the xy plane: horizontal and vertical lines. Without any more information, these examples can be pretty confusing. But with a little instruction, they end up being some of the easiest lines to graph!

### 6. 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.

### 7. 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.

### 8. 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.

### 9. 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.
