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!
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!
Plugging variables into an expression is essential for solving many algebra problems. See how to plug in variable values by watching this tutorial.
Wondering if a point is part of the equation of a line? Got the equation of the line but no graph? No problem! Just take that point and plug it into the equation and simplify. If you end up with a true statement, the point is indeed part of the equation. If you end up with a false statement, then that point is not part of the equation. See this process first-hand in this tutorial!
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!
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!
