Applications of Linear Equations - Concept

Concept Concept (1)

We often see math applied to the real world through word problems, and the applications of linear equations are seen throughout all our math courses after Algebra. To understand applications of linear equations we need to have an understanding of slope, how to interpret a graph, and how to write an equation. In upper-level Algebra, we apply systems of linear equations to these problems as well.
