Algebra: Solving Linear Equations – Part 1: The Basics

[NOTE: This video is only the first 18 minutes of the full lesson, please visit my website to purchase complete version] Lesson consists of providing you with a Self-Tutorial on how to solve linear equations. Tutor discusses what is an Equation, Solution, Solution Set, Equivalent Equations, Identity, Contradictions, Conditional Equations, Linear Equations, the Standard Form of a Linear Equation. I show you how to actually SOLVE linear equations going step-by-step. I don’t skip steps. I review some of the properties of Equality here too. I remind you to check the work done and how to solve linear equations using a calculator. At the end, you will know how to easily solve equations that look like:

2[y – (4y – 1)] = 5 – 9y

No word problems are done here. This is shown in DETAIL in Part 2 of the Lesson.

    Luis, … At the beginning you verbally state; … 2 + 3 = 5, and the screen shows 2+2=4 & 1+1=3. ….. I don't know if I am the first to notice this, … but, there you are, you made a boo boo.

  12. Karl Heinz Tala says:

    i definitely understand everything now! my teacher in math doesn't make sense in teaching (back in sophomore) and now that I'm in 9th grade I have no Idea when my teacher ask if is it a linear equation or whatsoever questions. now, I finally understand it!

  13. Ams S says:

    Very good video ,helped me alot with my study.Also I love the 80s sounding intro at the beginning!

  14. Jakeylla Harrison says:

    linear equations are complicated so thank. you you just made it a little bit more sense

  15. Charley Mao says:

    very helpful had to give you credit

  16. nathaniel ciriaco says:

    and you are like my teacher. 🙂

  17. nathaniel ciriaco says:

    hi video math tutor thanks for the math lesson i need it in high school.

  18. duplicarto says:

    Hold on, did that 1 + 1 equation just have number 3 for an answer?

  19. sid 97 says:

    actually i have a doubt in example 4 – you said 1/2x=3y a linear equation because both the variables x and y are present as numerators but in the case of  1/2x=3/y you said it is nonlinear how come you can use reciprocal method to keep them both as numeraotors as 1/2x=3/y is same as y=6x   please help me on this

  20. Rexel Agapay says:

    Thanks! Your video has helped me a lot 🙂
