#### Identifying parallel and perpendicular lines from equations

This shows how to transform all given equation that are not in slope-intercept form and then pick out the slopes of all three given lines and compare them to see if they are parallel, perpendicular…

#### Solving for a variable in terms of other variables in a linear equation with fractions

This describes the process of solving for a particular variable in terms of other variables in an equation. There is a need to go further to combine like terms before it is complete.

#### Solving a rational equation that simplifies to quadratic: Binomial denominators, constant numerators

Here we solve a rational equation by multiplying each of the terms in the equation by the LCD of all of the fractions. This allows us to divide to one all of the factors in the denominators and the…

#### Solving a rational equation that simplifies to linear: Like binomial denominators

This has two examples so that you can learn to watch out for what looks like a solution but is not because it creates division by zero if you check the answer in the original equation. The other…

#### Solving a rational equation that simplifies to linear: Denominators a, x, or ax

Demonstrates multiplying each term in a rational equation by the least common denominator of all fractions so that the denominators can be eliminated and the resulting linear equation can then be…
