You've been using algebra since your early schooling, when you learned formulas like the area of a rectangle, with width We used letters to stand for numbers.
Once we knew the width and height, we could substitute them into the formula and find our area.
Algebra is the branch of mathematics that uses letters in place of some unknown numbers.
Formulas and Literal Equations, which shows how to solve an equation for a particular variable. Applied Verbal Problems shows why we are doing all this.
We can have objects that Travel at Different Rates, objects that Travel in Different Directions or we may need to find the distance Given the Total Time Fraction Problems involve fractions or parts of a whole.
Geometry Word Problems deal with geometric figures and angles described in words.
This involve Adding to a Solution, Removing from a Solution, Replacing a Solution,or Mixing Items of Different Values Motion Word Problems are word problems that uses the distance, rate and time formula.
You may be asked to find the Value of a Particular Term or the Pattern of a Sequence Proportion Problems involve proportional and inversely proportional relationships of various quantities.
Break the problem down into smaller bits and solve each bit at a time.
First, we need to translate the word problem into equation(s) with variables.
