Trying to solve two equations each with the same two unknown variables? Take one of the equations and solve it for one of the variables. Then plug that into the other equation and solve for the variable. Plug that value into either equation to get the value for the other variable. This tutorial will take you through this process of substitution step-by-step!
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!
Simplifying an algebraic expression is a fundamental part of solving math problems. Get some practice putting an expression in simplest form by following along with this tutorial.
In this tutorial you'll see how to apply the distributive property. Remember that this is important when you are trying to simplify an expression and get rid of parentheses!
Solving an equation for a variable? Perform the order of operations in reverse! Check it out in this tutorial.
Imagine you have two equations with two variables that you're trying to solve for, and someone hands you the answer. How do you know that the answer is right? After watching this tutorial you'll see exactly what it takes to check that the answer you have is correct for BOTH equations!
Sometimes word problems describe a system of equations, two equations each with two unknowns. Solving word problems like this one aren't so bad if you know what to do. Check it out with this tutorial!
Knowing the definition of a system of equations is great, but you should also know how to solve them! This tutorial introduces you to the graphing method, substitution method, and elimination method for solving a system of equations. Take a look and learn them all!
