One of the first lessons taught in Algebra is Solving Equations. This is the basis of Algebra and many other lessons taught in Algebra will rely on knowledge of this skill.
An equation is a mathematical statement that shows that two quantities are equal.
For example, 6 + 3 = 9. This is an equation that shows that the expression 6+3 is equal to the quantity 9.
However, in Algebra, one of the terms is typically unknown and a variable (letter) is used in it's place. For example, x + 3 = 9 is an Algebra equation. We must solve this equation to determine the value of x.
I am going to teach you how to solve many types of equations. We will start with the basic algebra equation, which only involves one step to solve. From there we'll move onto two-step equations. I'll even teach you how to solve equations that contain fractions. They look scary, but they are really not too bad.
