This video builds on the work we have started with Algebra in the Methods 1 and 2 course. Having looked at how to solve linear equations, we now look at how to extract information from worded questions, create a linear equation and then solve it. Three common examples are used to scaffold the learning with in-depth discussion about how (and why) I am solving it in the way I do.
