Everyday budgeting and other financial issues often use linear equations. Linear equations involve two values that change according to a consistent pattern. More »

Quadratic equations govern many real world situations such as throwing a ball, calculating certain prices, construction, certain motions and electronics. They are most often used to describe motion of some sort. More »

Real-life examples of linear equations include distance and rate problems, pricing problems, calculating dimensions and mixing different percentages of solutions. One application of linear equations is illustrated in fin... More »

To solve one-step equations, perform the correct mathematical operation to get the variable by itself, and perform the same operation on the other side of the equation. Solve the equation when the variable is by itself. More »

The inconsistent system of linear equations is one for which there is no solution. When represented on a graph, the two lines are parallel and do not overlap. More »

Basic algebra assignments focus on simple single-variable linear equations, including how to construct and solve them. Students then look at linear inequalities, equations with more than one variable and function. Before... More »
