View the content: Solving Linear Equations and Inequalities: Exercise Supplement

 Name: Solving Linear Equations and Inequalities: Exercise Supplement ID: m21977 Language: English (en) Summary: This module is from Elementary Algebra by Denny Burzynski and Wade Ellis, Jr. In this chapter, the emphasis is on the mechanics of equation solving, which clearly explains how to isolate a variable. The goal is to help the student feel more comfortable with solving applied problems. Ample opportunity is provided for the student to practice translating words to symbols, which is an important part of the "Five-Step Method" of solving applied problems (discussed in modules ((Reference)) and ((Reference))). This module contains the exercise supplement for the chapter "Solving Linear Equations and Inequalities".
