Two-step problems are problems in which you need to not only solve an equation for the value of a variable, but then also use the solution to evaluate some other expression that depends on that same variable.

Read MoreThe domain is all x-values or inputs of a function and the range is all y-values or outputs of a function. When looking at a graph, the domain is all the values of the graph from left to right. The range is all the values of the graph from down to up.

Read MoreThere are three ways to solve systems of linear equations: substitution, elimination, and graphing. Substitution will have you substitute one equation into the other; elimination will have you add or subtract the equations to eliminate a variable; graphing will have you sketch both curves to visually find the points of intersection.

Read MoreAssociative comes from the word “associate”. Try to remember that “associate”, in terms of math, refers to grouping with parentheses. We’ll look at both the associative property of addition, and the associative property of multiplication.

Read MoreTo add rational expressions, you need to find a common denominator, just like when you add fractions in which the numerator and denominator are just numbers. The difference is that finding the common denominator of rational expressions can be more complicated because their denominators can include variables.

Read MoreMultiplying multivariable polynomials (polynomials with two or more different variables) is very similar to multiplying single-variable polynomials (those that have just one variable). You’ll just need to be careful about combining like terms.
