Solving an inequality for a variable? Just perform the order of operations in reverse! Don't forget that if you multiply or divide by a negative number, you MUST flip the sign of the inequality! That's one of the big differences between solving equalities and solving inequalities.
Multiplying and dividing numbers takes a good amount of thinking, and it's easy to make a mistake. But you can make sure that you're on the right track if you check whether the answer should be positive or negative. In this tutorial you'll see exactly how to tell if your answer will be positive or negative, even if you don't know the exact value of the answer. That way you'll always be able to check your answers!
Working with fractions can be intimidating, but if you arm yourself with the right tools, you'll find that working with fractions is no harder than working with basic numbers. In this tutorial you'll see the process for multiplying 3 very simple fractions. Enjoy!
You can't do algebra without working with variables, but variables can be confusing. If you've ever wondered what variables are, then this tutorial is for you!
Inequalities come up all the time when you're working algebra problems. In this tutorial you'll learn what an inequality is, and you'll see all the common inequality symbols that you're likely to see :)
Ever wondered what rules you're allowed to follow when you're working with inequalities? Well, one of those rules is called the multiplication property of inequality, and it basically says that if you multiply one side of an inequality by a number, you can multiply the other side of the inequality by the same number. However, you have to be very careful about the direction of the inequality! Watch the tutorial to see how this looks in terms of algebra!
This tutorial will help you understand what a set is, and the different kinds of sets that you may see when you're working on algebra problems :)
