Lesson goal: Solve Equations

Previous: Factor a polynomial | Home | Next: Take a derivative

Solving equations always comes up in many areas of math, so we've developed a function called solve that knows how to solve linear equations. Linear equations are equations where the exponents of the variables you want to solve for are always one ($1$).

The solve function works like this:

Move the mouse over a dotted box for more information.

Now you try. Try solving a linear equation. After that, try solving two equations with two unknowns (that is a "system of equations").
