So you're working on a math problem and you have the correct formula. Great! But the variable you need to solve for is not by itself in the formula. Not so great. Don't worry! In this tutorial, you'll learn how to solve a formula for the variable you want!
A literal equation is an equation where variables represent known values. Literal equations allow use to represent things like distance, time, interest, and slope as variables in an equation. Using variables instead of words is a real time-saver! Learn about literal equations with this tutorial.
Trying to write an equation in point-slope form? Have two points but no slope? You'll need to use those points to find a slope first. Watch this tutorial and see what needs to be done to write an equation in point-slope form!
When you're learning about linear equations, you're bound to run into the point-slope form of a line. This form is quite useful in creating an equation of a line if you're given the slope and a point on the line. Watch this tutorial, and learn about the point-slope form of a line!
One of the many ways you can solve a quadratic equation is by graphing it and seeing where it crosses the x-axis. Follow along as this tutorial shows you how to graph a quadratic equation to find the solution. Check it out!
One of the many ways you can solve a quadratic equation is by using the square root method. Follow along with this tutorial and see how to use the square root method to solve a quadratic equation. Take a look!
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!
If two things are directly proportional, you can bet that you'll need to use the formula for direct variation to solve! In this tutorial, you'll see how to use the formula for direct variation to find the constant of variation and then solve for your answer.
