**I have found some top tips for you guys**

**1. An equation contians a = sign**

**2. SOLVE means find the value of a unknown quantity**

**3. You may add, subtract,multiply and divide the same quantity to both sides**

**4. Collect all x terms on one side of the equation**

**me and Adam are working out how to solve linear equations which are quite**

**hard but you need to take you're time and try you hardest some are not as hard**

**like:**

**y + 9 = 4**

**working out : 4 - 9 = - 5 because it is easier to work out backwards**

**then you put it the normal way and it = - 5 + 9 = 4 which**

**is definitely right**

Well done, explaining algebra is tough isn't it?!

ReplyDeleteGreat idea finding a video to help explain.

Could you show some examples from your books? It's helpful to see some examples with all the working out shown.
