In the Solving Equations lecture, Professor Eaton goes over first translating back and forth between verbal expressions and algebraic expressions. Then, there is a brief overview on properties of equality such as the reflexive, symmetric, transitive, addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division properties. Then you will dive into solving equations and then solving variables. Four full video examples round out this video to make sure you understand every concept.
A solution to an equation is a number that makes the equation true.
Equality satisfies the reflexive, symmetric, and transitive properties.
If both sides of an equation are increased, decreased, multiplied, or divided by the same number, the resulting equation is equivalent to the original one and has the same solutions.
Use these properties to solve a formula for a variable.
To solve a word problem, define a variable and create an equation. Then solve that equation.
