     MATH 101A / AD1-6     Home Linear Equations Types Solving Examples Tips & Strategies Word Problems Acknowledgement Resources Linear Equations  A linear equation looks like any other equation. It is made up of two expressions set equal to each other. A linear equation is special because:

1. It has one or two variables.
2. No variable in a linear equation is raised to a power greater than 1 or used as the denominator of a fraction.
3. When you find pairs of values that make the linear equation true and plot those pairs on a coordinate grid, all of the points for any one equation lie on the same line. Linear equations graph as straight lines.

Recall the following:

• A linear equation is a polynomial of degree 1.
• In order to solve for the unknown variable, you must isolate the variable
• In the order of operations, multiplication and division are completed before addition and subtraction      Lycos MP3 Search Artist or Song Name: SEARCH:Tripod The Web
