What is the Formula for Simple Interest?

Interest is found in a bunch of places: savings accounts, mortgages, loans, investments, credit cards, and more! Watch this tutorial and learn how to calculate simple interest!

What's a Percent of Change?

Lots of things in this world change their value such as cars, video games, and computers. When something either increases or decreases in value, it can be useful to know the percent of that change in value. To figure out that percent, you'll need the percent of change formula. Learn it with this tutorial!

What's the Formula Connecting Distance, Speed, and Time?

When you have constant speed, the same formula pops up over and over again, and that's the formula that connects distance, speed, and time. Make sure you know this formula, and if you want a refresher, check out the tutorial!

What's the Direct Variation or Direct Proportionality Formula?

Ever heard of two things being directly proportional? Well, a good example is speed and distance. The bigger your speed, the farther you'll go over a given time period. So as one variable goes up, the other goes up too, and that's the idea of direct proportionality. But you can express direct proportionality using equations, and that's an important thing to do in algebra. See how to do that in the tutorial!

How Do You Solve and Graph a Two-Step Inequality?

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.
