Background Tutorials

Solve real-world and mathematical problems by writing and solving equations of the form x + p = q and px = q for cases in which p, q and x are all nonnegative rational numbers.

Solving equations can be tough, especially if you've forgotten or have trouble understanding the tools at your disposal. One of those tools is the subtraction property of equality, and it lets you subtract the same number from both sides of an equation. Watch the video to see it in action!

Further Exploration

Create equations in two or more variables to represent relationships between quantities; graph equations on coordinate axes with labels and scales.

Get some practice with the point-slope form and standard form of an equation! This tutorial shows you how to use two given points to write an equation in both forms. Take a look!
