Basic Algebra Problem

You and 6 friends want to get ice cream. A single scoop is $1 and a double scoop is $2. You and your friends decide to put all your money together and want to see if you can all get a double scoop.

Solving Equations with Variables

The following is an example of an equation that requires multiplication, addition and subtraction knowledge with variables. This equation is solving for X. The final result should include variable X on one side of the equal sign with an number on the other.


Many problems can be set up as a ratio and becomes very easy to solve.

Solving Quadratic Equations Using Factoring

A Quadratic Equation at this level usually looks something like this: 2x + 4x – 6 = 0 I will explain the easiest way to solve a quadratic equation.

Quadratic Formula

The quadratic formula is a life-saver when finding the value(s) for a variable given a complex equation. The formula itself may seem overwhelming, but the process is as simple as plugging in the numbers that are given to you from the original equation into the quadratic formula.

Solving an inequality

In this tutorial, I will explain how you can solve an inequality to identify the possible x values that make this inequality true. I will then describe what the actual answer means to us.

Point-Slope Form

In this tutorial, we will discover how to find the equation of a line using the Point-Slope formula.

Understanding Slope-Intercept Form

In this problem, we will determine the slope and y-intercept of line AB. We will put those two values in slope-intercept form: y=mx+b


It is often difficult to grasp the idea of slope when it is first introduced. A simple way to think about it is the “steepness” of the line on the graph. The most common equation to find slope is y=mx+b. In this equation, m represents the slope.

One Step Equations

These are one step equations to find the variable of the problem.
