In this lecture you will learn about the basics of Solving Equations. Professor Fraser will walk you through starting with Translations from Verbal to Algebraic Expressions. Then you will learn the Properties of Equality which include the Reflexive Property, Symmetric Property, and Transitive Property. Finally, you will cover Solving Equations and Solving for a Variable before delving into several completely worked out video examples.
A solution to an
equation is a number that makes the equation true.
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.
